Just as we were a-going to dinner, my brother Will came in. He dined with us on the remains of Saturday’s dinner. My brother Will stayed all night. In the evening went down to Mr Porter’s to ask his opinion about the mistake made in the poor tax of the year 1753 by Mr French, in the Duke’s land. He assured [me] he would speak to Mr Coates about it and see it should be settled. Stayed there until near 10 o’clock.
