In the morning John Browne came up to my house and I persuaded him to permit Mr Porter to write to his parish for a certificate… In the evening I went down to Jones’s, where we had a vestry to consult on moving Osborne tomorrow and many other things of small note. The people at the vestry were Mr French, Joseph and Thomas Fuller, Mr Burgess, Richard Page, Joseph Durrant and myself. We stayed till about 11:30 quarrelling and wrangling. We spent on the parish account, 5/-, and also 3½d each of our own. Oh, what pleasure it is to think we have compromised the affair between John Browne and the parish.
