Just before churchtime my brother Will came to see me, and he and I both went to church in the morning (my wife staying at home)… We dined on some beans, bacon and a butter pudding cake. My wife at church in the afternoon, my brother and self staying at home. My brother stayed and drank tea with us and went away about 7:20. In the evening read part of Sherlock on judgment. This is the 17th day on which it has rained successively.
