My brother came over in the forenoon to see us and stayed… till near 6 o’clock. Paid John Streeter the post 10d for 2 lemons, 1 oz sago and 1 mackerel which he bought in Lewes for me today. At home all day and but very little to do. In the day read Thomson’s “Spring”. My wife continues very ill. This day the boys of Chiddingly and our parish played at cricket on our common, when the boys of our parish came off victors; having 5 wickets to go down.
