…Myself and wife and sister at church in the morning… We had a brief read for fire. The number of sufferers thereby was three, living in the counties of Hants and Dorset. Their loss together amounted to £1147 and upwards. I gave to the brief 1½d.

We dined on part of a loin of veal boiled and a part roasted, a currant rice pudding, some greens and a green salad. My sister, wife, self and servant at church in the afternoon… In the afternoon my brother came over and drank tea with us, and myself and wife with Thomas Durrant and Joseph Fuller went and brought them going on their road home. Went in and smoked a pipe at Mr French’s and came home about 10:20.
