Thursday, November 3 1757

Rec’d of John Streeter a bill from Sam Durrant on Sir Joseph Hankey & Co. in lieu of the £20 I sent by him on Monday last for the said bill. Paid him 2/-, which he paid to Mr Will Kemp for mending my watch, and afterwards I lent him in cash 10/6. Rec’d of Mr Vine 1 hundred kiln-faggots. We dined on the remains of Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and yesterday’s dinners with the addition of a light pudding and some turnips. At home all day. Read part of Tillotson’s Rule of Faith. In the evening Thomas Davy at our house, to whom I read 3 of Tillotson’s sermons.
