Thursday, February 16 1758

At home all day. We dined on a cold beef pie, light pudding and some Jerusalem artichokes. In the afternoon posted my day book, and in the evening Mr Elless at our house a-learning the use of the sliding rule. Rec’d by the post today (from Mr John Fuller) in cash £20 for the use of Mrs Mary Virgoe, it being the money due to her when Mr Fuller and she balanced accounts, and for which she then received his note of hand. In the evening read part of the New Whole Duty of Man.
