After breakfast my father and I walked down to Mr Medhurst’s and looked at his wool and bid him 7d per lb for it but did not buy it. We came back and dined at my father Slater’s… In the afternoon we drank tea at my uncle Woodgate’s and about 7:40 we set out for home (my brother Sam Slater bringing my wife), where we arrived, thank God, in perfect health about 11:10. My brother Sam Slater stayed all night. Thomas Davy in our absence had made us a present of 2 carps. Spent this journey as under:
