Wednesday, August 3 1757

In the morning my brother went over to Framfield and came back and breakfasted with us. After breakfast my brother and I went over to Mr Peckham’s, where we weighed up his wool; viz., cloth No. 5, 187 fleeces; weight 13 tod 14 lbs, at 21/-, £14.2.2¼, for which I gave him my note of hand. We dined there on a neck of lamb boiled, a piece of pork, a butter pudding cake, white cabbage and carrots, my family at home dining on the sheep’s head and bell bought yesterday.
