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.
