After breakfast I went for Fanny Weller on my own mare. I arrived at Eastbourne about 12:20. I dined at Mr Henry Weller’s on a leg of lamb boiled and carrots with an apple pudding… I stayed and drank tea there in company with the officer of excise at Eastbourne, whom I think to be a very sensible man. He was, I understand, brought up by a grocer and tallow chandler. We came home about 8:20. I spent this journey 12d, which Mrs Weller is to repay me. My wife in my absence sent by Streeter 4/9 to pay my club arrears.
