Saturday, July 2 1757

Took physic today… In the forenoon my brother and I went down to Halland and delivered Mr Coates’s bill, amounting to 2.16.0. We dined today on lamb’s liver and some rashers of pork fried, a pudding baked under the leg of lamb, the lamb’s tongue and brain, with a gooseberry tart and a custard.

Busy all the evening. Charles Diggens took up a frock etc. for himself… This day Mr Francis Elless and Thomas Durrant ran in Halland garden a foot race 20 rods for 2/6 each, which was won by Thomas Durrant, I suppose with ease (I not being there). I went half the bet with Thomas Durrant so that of consequence I won 15d.
