We dined on some boiled tripe and some boiled whiting. In the afternoon my brother came over to bring the mare, but did not stay. In the day read part of the 5th volume of Medical Essays etc. Paid John Cayley 4/- in full for one year’s rent for my stable, due about the 10 July last.

At home all day. In the evening read 3 of. Tillotson’s sermons. My wife very ill. In the evening wrote a letter to Mr Nicholas Attwood to inform him Mr Burgess and I proposed to be at his house on Monday between 8 and 9 o’clock in the morning, either to give him security, or to proceed to Uckfield to wait Mr Courthope’s arbitration.
