In the forenoon our servant went over to Framfield and brought me from my mother’s in cash £14. Charles Diggens dined with us on the remains of yesterday’s dinner. I also received of him in cash 11/6 in full. Molly and Elizabeth Fuller, Anne Fuller, Fanny Weller and Molly French drank tea with us, and they, together with Joseph, Thomas and Richard Fuller, Thomas Durrant and John French supped with us on a piece of boiled salt fish, a rabbit, apple pasty cold, a cold baked rice pudding, parsnips, egg sauce etc. They stayed and played at brag (my wife lost 3½d) and spent the evening with us till about 2 o’clock. Paid the post today 15d for 12 lemons and 1 letter. About 10:10 in the evening Mr Will Rice called on me, but did not stay.
