Wednesday, June 7 1758

In the morning sent James Marchant to Framfield for my sister, who accordingly came along with him. Mr Stone paid my wife another visit today and let her blood… This day I was the spectator, and an idle spectator, only, but a gainful partaker of that which I think no man ever was; that is, of Master Piper’s generosity. For he this day made my wife a present of 2 fine carp. We dined on the carp boiled and a light pudding.

Paid Joseph Fuller by his son Thomas 2/- for one leg of lamb received today, weighing 6 lbs. At home all day. In the evening cut out 12 round frocks… Paid John Dan 4/- in full for working 6 days in the highroads for me.
