In the forenoon went down to Halland with Mr Coates’s bill and received 6.4.0 in full to this day. This day my wife paid Mary Martin our servant in cash and goods 40/- in full for 1 year’s wages, and she accordingly went away about 3:20.

This day received of Mr Thomas Jones by his wife 0.8.3½ in full, having outset 10/- for 2 bushels malt. We dined on a knuckle of veal, a light pudding and turnip greens. Mr Jones, Miss Read, Dame Turner and Halland gardener drank tea with us. Very busy all day.
