In the morning wrote my London letters and very busy. Thomas Davy at our house a-helping me gather apples most part of the day. He dined with us about 3:30 my brother came to my house; he, Thomas Davy, Dame Hook and Molly drank tea at our house. About 5 o’clock my brother and I set out for Lewes in order to meet Mr Stephen Fletcher (Mr Samuel Ridings’s servant). We arrived at Lewes about 7:50; we spent the evening at the White Horse in company with Mr Fletcher, Mr Buckall and Mr George Richardson. We also lodged at the White Horse and went to bed thanks be to God very sober. My wife at home in my absence left my business with the care of a servant and went and stayed at Dame Weller’s all night.
