A great deal of rain fell in the night. After breakfast Thomas Fuller called on me to go to Bayley’a Lane with him in order to talk to one John Sicklemore about some money which appears to the parish to be due to the wife of Will Slarks, whose family is now become chargeable to this parish. We accordingly went and talked with the man, who says there is something due to her from him as being something of a trustee to her. And he has assured us he will speedily pay it. We came home round by Chiddingly and came home about 2:40… In the evening Mr Elless and I walked down to Peter Adams’s to look at Mr Carman’s wool which is lodged there. We came home round by the common where there were 3 or 4 boys at cricket; we stayed there near an hour. Thomas Davy at our house in the evening, who stayed with us till near 11 o’clock.
