In the morning went down to the Rev Mr Porter’s and received of him…6.6.0…as under:
|To a note of hand which Mr Porter gave me the 4th January last||7.17.0|
|To 1 earthen jar||0.8.6|
|To the carriage of two salt fish||0.0.6|
I gave Mr Porter the note of hand he gave me the 4th of January and also took up mine which I gave him the 15th instant. Paid Joseph Fuller by his son Richard 18d for 1 leg of lamb received by him today, weighing 4½ lbs at 4d per lb. We dined on a light pudding and green salad. Mrs Vine the younger drank tea with us. Very busy all day; at work in my garden part of the day. In the evening read the 8th book of Paradise Lost. In the day read part of The Peerage of England. I have been in a continual anxiety of mind all this day by expecting to hear every minute of my success in Master Darby’s affair.
