In the morning my brother came over and breakfasted with us… In the evening went down to Jones’s, there being a public vestry. We also made a poor book after the rate of 3/6 to the pound. There were at the vestry Mr Jeremiah French, Mr William Piper, Thomas and Joseph Fuller, John Cayley, Richard Page, Ed Foord, Joseph Durrant, Joseph Burgess, Mr John Hammond and myself. I came home about 9:10. Our servant sat up with Thomas Ling. Very busy all day. Paid John Cayley in cash 2/- for 2 seats in the church of Mrs Browne’s, it for one year due in February.
