Sunday, September 25 1757

Just as we were going to breakfast, my brother Will came in, as did Mr John Breeden and his wife, of Pevensey, about 10:10. They all dined with us on a leg of mutton boiled, turnips and carrots, 2 ducks roasted and gravy sauce and a currant rice pudding. After dinner Mr Breeden and his wife, and my wife and self walked down to see Halland. In our road we called in at Mr Bridgman’s, he being a relation of Mr Breeden; they both went with us, and after seeing the place over, they all came back and drank tea at our house.

They all went away except my brother about 6:10. My brother stayed till near 8 o’clock. I received of my brother in cash 21/-, which with the 2.2.0 received of him the 10th July is in full for a silver watch he had of me. We had no service at our church in the morning, Mr Porter being a-visiting at Mayfield. In the afternoon the Rev, Mr Shenton, curate of Laughton, preached, here. My brother and the 2 boys at church. In the evening read 2 of Tillotson’s sermons.
