Paid Joseph Fuller by his son Thomas 3½d for 1 lb mutton received by him today. Myself at church in the morning (my wife staying at home on account of her cold)… We dined on the 1 lb of mutton stewed, with some carrots. In the afternoon Thomas Davy and I walked over to Waldron Church where we heard a fine sermon preached by the Rev Mr Delves, rector of that parish and Frant, from the 15th verse of the 2nd chapter of the Epistle of Paul the Apostle to the Romans: “Which show the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another.” Thomas Davy came home along with me and drank some coffee with us and stayed the evening, to whom I read one of Tillotson’s sermons. In the day read part of Hervey’s Theron and Aspasio.
