After breakfast Mr Joseph Burgess called on me to acquaint me that John Durrant declared he would not remove if he had not some wood sent before to the house, upon which he and I went and talked with him and promised him some faggots. We then went down to Will Sinden’s and got the key of the house of Will Bristow. From there we went to Mr Reeve’s, where Mr Burgess paid him in my presence 1.15.0, which I understood [was] in full. We then went to Richard Hope’s, where I left the key and bought a ¼ hundred faggots for them. We then called at Mr Piper’s, who we found was gone to remove them… In the afternoon my brother came over to our house, and he and Mrs Virgoe stayed and drank tea with us. I gave my brother in cash £16, which with the £13 left with my mother, makes £29, which they are to pay Mr John Smith. Thomas Davy sat a while with us in the evening. This day lent Mr Francis Elless The Black Prince and The Distressed Mother.
