Sunday, July 3 1757

After breakfast my brother Moses went over to Framfield to my mother’s. My whole family at church in the forenoon… We dined on the lamb’s head which was boiled yesterday, as also the lights, mint etc. minced with the addition of a green salad, gooseberry pie and custard.

In the afternoon our maid and nephew went to Chiddingly Church (to order the cooper to call at our house). Myself, wife and Philip at church in the afternoon… George Richardson came to see us while we were at church in the afternoon and stayed till we came out of church and also stayed and drank tea with us. And then my wife and I went down to Jones’s with him, where he treated myself and wife with a bottle of raisin wine. Thomas Davy at our house in the evening, to whom, and in the day, I read 4 of Tillotson’s sermons, 3 of which I think as good sermons as can be read.
