After dinner walked down to Edmund Elphick’s to get in his debt, but could not. From thence I went to Framfield where I just stayed a few minutes, and then my brother and I walked to Uckfield in order to get a debt of Thomas Osborne, but when I came there, I found him absconded. I came back to my mother’s, where I drank tea. I came home about 6:50.
In the evening Master Hook and I walked down to Whitesmith to talk with Mr Osborne concerning his son’s debt; he promised me he would pay me by the 4th of March. We came home about 8:20. Master Hook supped with us.
