…In the afternoon my brother came over and brought me from my mother in cash 1.5.0, it being in full for 1 quarter’s board etc. of Philip Turner, due yesterday. Paid Mrs Virgoe the £20 I received by the post Thursday last. In the evening read part of the New Whole Duty of Man and part of the 6th volume of Medical Essays. A remarkable cold day, but no frost. I begin to find trade once more to grow very dull and that it is almost next-to impossible to get in any money due on book.
