Took physic today… Gave Mr Beckett in cash 14.4.0 for him to pay in London for me. About 9:45 my sister Sally and my cousin Anne Ovendean came see us and dined with us… After we had drunk tea, my sister and cousin walked down to Halland where I received of Mr Coates 2.16.0 in full to the 30th day of June last. Gave Mr Beckett’s carter 10d for bringing down my mare and paying the turnpike. My sister and cousin stayed all night… In the evening read part of Josephus’s Jewish Antiquities.
