In the forenoon my brother came over; he stayed and dined with us on a light pudding and Savoy greens with the remains of yesterday’s dinner. Paid Anne Braizer for Dame Trill 2/- on account of Mr Burgess for the parish. Rec’d by my brother from my mother in cash 5.5.0 in part of money that I am to pay for nails with, sent for this week on her account. At home all day a-marking up goods that came down last week. In the evening wrote my London letters and read part of the 1st volume of the English Peerage. George Richardson called on us in the evening, but did not stay.
