…This day received by the post the disagreeable news of the French being landed at Dover. Oh, melancholy news! but yet I hope it is only a false report set about by some credulous and fearful people without any real foundation.

About 8:20 Mr Richard Sterry came in and we balanced accounts. I paid him…19.5.6 in full on my account to this day. Mr Sterry supped and lodged at our house. At home all day. Received of Joseph Fuller 1½ 1bs mutton not paid for, that I received in the morning being paid for. My wife very ill with a cold all day and I think somewhat dangerous.
