Paid Joseph Fuller (by Elizabeth Fuller) 6d for the lamb’s bell received the 9th instant. We dined on some pork and beans with a plain batter pudding. Just as we had dined, my father Slater came in, who dined at our house on some rashers of bacon and green salad.
My wife and I had this day borrowed Mr John Vine the younger’s horse in order for my wife to ride to Lewes upon, but as my father came, we postponed our journey to Lewes. Upon my father’s telling me that he had bid some money for wool but was quite unacquainted with the goodness of wool, I readily agreed to take a ride over and give him my sentiments about it. Accordingly about 5:50 we set out for Hartfield, my wife behind her father, and I upon my colt. We arrived at Hartfield about 9:20. We spent the evening at my father Slater’s and stayed there all night.
