Paid Joseph Page 10/- which was for 1 dozen shoe hemp Francis Smith bought at Lewes for my mother on Monday last… Rec’d of Dame Paris £2 for her part of the rent paid to Mr Burfield the 9th of this instant. At home all day. In the evening read 2 of Tillotson’s sermons. This day Peter Adams came to talk with me concerning a letter he had received on my account from Mr Thornton and to beg of me to give him a respite for about 20 days more, which I did not then promise him I would. But I think humanity is most durable.
