Sunday, November 13 1757

In the morning our servant went over to Framfield, there, being no service at our church this forenoon on account of Mr Porter’s being gone to preach at Mayfield. My wife, self and 2 boys not at church anywhere in the morning. We dined on a piece of beef boiled and turnips and a piece of the scrag end of a neck of veal boiled. My wife, self and 2 boys at church in the afternoon when we had a sermon preached by the Rev Mr Shenton, Curate of Laughton, from Genesis 42:21: “And they said one to another, We are verily guilty concerning our brother, in that we saw the anguish of his soul, when he besought us, and we would not hear; therefore is this distress come upon us.” At home all day. In the evening and in the day read 6 of Tillotson’s sermons. A very cold day.
