In the morning got up and packed my rags, which weighed 5 cwt 3 quarters 10 lbs, and which I sent to Francis Smith for him to dispose of at Maidstone Fair for me. Rec’d today of Mr James Bristed 1.4.6 in full for poor tax. We dined on a veal pudding. About 6:10 I walked over to Framfield for my mother’s pall and came again about 8:10. This day we had a tempest of thunder, lightning and rain which began about 2 o’clock and continued with some intervals of time between till near 6 o’clock.
