Myself and Philip at church in the forenoon… We dined on a pig roasted and bread sauce. John Wickham of Ticehurst, one of my old quondam play-fellows, called on me, but did not stay. Rec’d of Mr Joseph Burgess the £7 I lent him the 8th instant and gave him his note of hand, which he then gave me.

Myself, Philip and servant at church in the afternoon; the text in Luke 16:25: “And Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.” From which words we had an excellent sermon setting forth the folly of a wicked and ill-spent life. At home all day except being at church. In the evening and in the day read part of the New Whole Duty of Man.
