In the morning our servant went to see her friends. In the forenoon my brother Moses and my cousin Moses and John Bennett came to see us. They dined with us on the remains of Sunday’s dinner with the addition of [light] pudding, potatoes, rice pie and pear pie. Rec’d from my mother by my brother in cash 13.16.8, which is in full for the bill I sent her the 13th instant, value 14.7.0 for 23 lbs shoe hemp and 0.13.2; 7lbs gunpowder, 0.10.6, which together makes the said sum of 15.18.8. My brother and cousins stayed all night. At home all day and very busy. A very sharp frost.
