At home all the morning. My wife very ill… In the afternoon went down to Mr Coates’s and carried in their bill, but could receive no money. In the evening I carried down to Mr Porter’s some silver and received of him the 6/9 left when we balanced on Thursday evening and which is in full to the 1st of January, 1757. Thomas Davy spent the evening with us. Rec’d a letter by the post from Mr John Collison for me to meet him tomorrow at my mother’s. Gave John Dan 6d on the parish account.
