Sunday, January 7 1759

My wife, self and servant at church in the morning… We dined on sheep’s lights and mint boiled and minced. In the afternoon Thomas Durrant and I walked over to Framfield where we drank tea at my mother’s, and from thence we walked round by John Midmire’s at Barnet Wood to ask him for some money, when I received the comfortable news of his keeping out of sight for debt. Sure I am a most unfortunate man what will become of me I cannot think. I must certainly fail and leave off trade. We came home about 6:10. Mr John [Collison?] called on me in my absence. My wife and servant at church in the afternoon. In the evening read two of Tillotson’s sermons and part of Young’s Night Thoughts.
