At home all day. John Browne at work for me part of the forenoon. We dined on a loin of veal (bought on Saturday) roasted in the oven and some asparagus… Paid Mr French by cash 7.5.1 and by a book debt 0.15.11, which together makes the sum of 8.1.0 and is in full for the note of hand I gave him the l4th April. I accordingly took up the said note. In the afternoon my brother called here in his way to Lewes, he being a-going to work there, and I paid him in cash 2/- and, by a book debt, 9/1, which is in full to this day. Mrs Rippington and Elizabeth Akehurst drank tea with us… Rec’d of Mr John Vine ½ cord of wood.
