Myself, two boys and servant at church in the morning… We dined on the remains of Wednesday’s soup and a piece of boiled beef and Savoy greens. Myself, two boys and servant at church in the afternoon… After churchtime Mr Hook and I went and took a walk round Mrs Virgoe’s wood, where we found she has sustained damages, in my opinion, to the amount of 20/- at the least, either by her brother’s ignorance or covetousness.
In the day read part of the New Whole Duty of Man. In the evening Thomas Davy at our house. I completed reading the second time Sherlock on death, which I think an extreme good book; the more I read of it, the better I like it.
