At home all day. Drew off a barrel of perry. Dined on a roasted sparerib (given me by Thomas Darby) and a piece of a neck of veal boiled and applesauce. Dame Rothfield and Dame Merricks drank tea with us… Pretty busy all day. In the evening ground some pepper and read 2 of Tillotson’s sermons. This day has been spent with more pleasure than the preceeding one.
