My brother came over in the forenoon to borrow the mare, but did not stay… Borrowed of the widow Marchant in cash one guinea on account she could not give me silver for a 36/- piece. Paid my brother in cash and goods 6/8 in full for 8 yds striped camlet sold to Mrs French today. We dined on the remains of yesterday’s dinner… Sent Dame Marchant the guinea by Philip which I borrowed of her today… In the afternoon Mr Harrison of Seaford brought to me one Elizabeth Blackman with an order signed by James Chambers and Robert Palmer, justices of the town and port of Seaford. Very busy all day; at home all day. Thomas Davy supped with us, to whom I read 2 of Tillotson’s sermons.
