Only myself at church in the morning… There was a brief read for the Chapel of Wetherby in the West Riding of Yorkshire, to which I gave 1d. Called a vestry to consult about the overseers that were nominated on Monday last, they both declaring they will not serve it, but (as is the custom of our vestries) we came to no resolution concerning it. We dined on a piece of bacon, a knuckle of the shoulder of veal (bought yesterday) boiled and some greens. In the afternoon my whole family at church… After churchtime Mr French and I signed a certificate for John Callaway and Mary his wife and William their son. The said certificate was made to the parish of Rye. The two who attested the said certificate were Stephen Clinch and Thomas Davy. Rec’d of John Callaway 3/- for me to get the certificate signed. In the evening. Thomas Davy sat with us, to whom, and in the day, I read four of Tillotson’s sermons.
