Tuesday, May 3 1757

…About 8:10 my brother and I set off for Lewes on foot where we arrived about 11:30. But as we found Mr Snelling not at home, we were obliged to stay. We dined at Mr Friend’s on a shoulder of mutton roasted and green sallard [salad] (my family at home dining on the remains of yesterday’s dinner)… About 7 o’clock Mr Snelling came home and cut my brother an issue in his temple. We stayed at Mr Scrase’s all night and lodged there and both went to bed very sober.
