Sunday, May 8 1757

Thomas Davy breakfasted with us. My wife, maid and Philip at church in the morning, but not myself on account of my being ill with a cold. We dined on the remains of yesterday’s dinner with the addition of a suet plum pudding and some pickled salmon sent us yesterday by Mrs Roase. My wife, maid and Philip at church in the afternoon. This day have I taken up a resolution, God being my helper, to live a sober, virtuous and pious life, which God grant I may do, through the mercies and intercession of my blessed Savior and Redeemer, Amen.

At home all day. Read part of Horneck’s Law of Consideration and one of Tillotson’s sermons.
