Sunday, January 22 1758

Myself and two boys at church in the morning… John Hide, Mr Will Bennett’s apprentice, called on me after churchtime, but did not stay. Just as we were a-going to dinner, my brother Will came in, who dined with us on a piece of beef boiled, two raisin suet puddings and some potatoes. Just after we had dined Mr Tucker came in, who dined on the remains of what we left. My wife, two boys and servant at church in the afternoon. Just as they came from church, my brother Moses came. About 5 o’clock. Mr Joseph Hill’s servant called for my brother Will, and both went away immediately. Mr Tucker and my brother Moses stayed and drank some coffee with us, and both went away about seven o’clock. A very sharp frosty day; a great deal of snow upon the ground. In the evening and in the day read the first Sunday in The Whole Duty of Man.
