In the morning after I had breakfasted, I carried Mrs Virgoe to Lewes on my mare in order for her to present the petition I wrote for her yesterday to Mrs Medley. We arrived at Lewes about 11:30. Mrs Virgoe accordingly presented her petition, but could not have any direct answer thereto on account of Mrs Medley’s being just a-going out. I dined at the White Horse today on a boiled hog’s cheek, a piece of boiled beef, an apple pudding, greens and potatoes… Mrs Virgoe and I came home about 6:50, and both very sober… Thomas Davy at our house in the evening, to whom I read 3 of Tillotson’s sermons. Spent today as under (which I think may be justly charged to Mrs Virgoe, as I never charge her anything for myself or horse):
