Paid Francis Smith in cash 2/6 in full on account of Mrs Day at Mayfield… In the evening went down to the vestry where there was Mr Porter, Mr Piper, Joseph Durrant, Thomas Fuller, Mr French and myself. We spent 6½d each and came home sober about 10:20 after a great deal of wrangling. This day gave Mr Elless orders for to take Dallaway’s son to school, and I would pay for his schooling. In the day read part of The Peerage of England. A very sharp, windy day.
