…This day paid Mr Heaver, the miller at Isfield, 12/- for 2 bushels oatmeal received today. Also paid Fieldcox, patten-maker at Battle, 2.6.6 for goods received today… In the afternoon our maid went over to Framfield and stayed all night. In the evening John Watford beat out some apples for us and supped at our house. In the evening read part of Gorden’s Geography. We had very remarkable weather last night; viz., about 9:30 very clear, and seemingly froze; about 11 a great shower of rain and hail, and about 12 a large clap of thunder and several flashes of lightning; and in the latter part of the night it froze hard and snowed.
