Mr Francis Elless supped with us (we eating no dinner) on a piece of beef and a duck roasted, a light pudding and greens. Mr French this day made me a present of a fine goose and gave my wife and me an invitation to come and see him and Mrs French tomorrow. In the afternoon wrote out part of Mr James Hutson’s bill. At home all day. Thomas Fuller Jr came in by accident to our house, and he stayed and supped with us. He with Mr Elless stayed and spent the evening with us. In the day read part of the Medical Essays. A very fine, gentle thaw continues.
