In the morning my wife and self at church… We dined on [a raisin?] suet pudding, some boiled veal and turnips. My wife, self and servant at church in the afternoon… I went from church down to Mr French’s, where I wrote out some more quit-rent receipts. I drank tea at Mr French’s and came home about 7:10. We had several claps of thunder between 4 and 5, and as I came home I observed several very violent flashes of lightning. I believe I might say I saw 5 or 6. In the evening read one of Tillotson’s sermons.
