Thursday, May 12 1757

In the morning at work in my garden. We dined on a piece of pork, suet, pearl barley pudding and turnip greens. In the afternoon Sarah Trill came and drank tea with us. At home all day. Read part of a book written by Vincent Perronet, vicar of Shoreham in Kent. In the evening Thomas Davy at our house, to whom I read one of Tillotson’s sermons. This day our parish and Chiddingly played at cricket at Broad Oak, when ours was beat, Chiddingly having 8 wickets to go up.
