Friday, May 6 1757

At home all day. My brother stayed all day. We dined on the remains of yesterday’s dinner. This day paid Mr Thomas Awcock in cash 5.19.8, by a receipt for land tax 14/- and by another for quit-rent 16d, which together make the sum of 6.15.0, and is in full for 1 year’s rent due for his land, which is used by my mother and myself. A prodigious melancholy time. Nothing to do.
