Took physic today. At work in my garden all the forenoon, Rec’d of Mrs Atkin’s 7/8 in full… In the afternoon borrowed a horse of Mr Burgess to go to Lewes upon for things for the funeral of Mr Richard Goldsmith, widower, late of this parish, but died this morning at the house of Master Gladman at Laughton and was aged 80 years. I accordingly set out for Lewes about 4:45 and came home about 8:10 without ever eating or drinking or being off my horse. I spent 2½d for the turnpike etc.
