Sunday, Ocotber 9 1757

My wife, self and maid at church in the morning (the 2 boys staying at home)… This day the holy sacrament being administered, my wife, self and maid all stayed… We gave 6d each, we paying for our servant. This day have my wife and I taken up a resolution in the presence of our almighty God and Saviour with His divine Grace and Holy Spirit, to forsake our sins and to become better Christians. Oh, may the God of all goodness and perfection pour into our hearts His Holy Spirit that we may live together in true unity, love and peace with each other, bearing with each other’s infirmities and weaknesses, and that we may also live in peace with all mankind.

We dined on beef pudding, carrots and some cold raisin suet pudding. My whole family at church in the afternoon… Thomas Davy at our house in the evening, to whom, and in the day, I read 6 of Tillotson’s sermons.
