My brother came over in the forenoon. I gave him one bill on Mr Will Margesson… in full for the money I borrowed of him the 22nd ult. We dined on some boiled lamb and turnips, with the remains of yesterday’s diner. In the afternoon went with Mr Thornton to weigh some hops at Mr Piper’s and Mr Vine’s.
In the evening went down to Jones’s, there being a vestry called yesterday to make a poor rate, which we did at the rate of one shilling and sixpence to the pound, and which was signed by all present; viz., Thomas Fuller, churchwarden, John Cayley, overseer, John Vine, Jeremiah French, Will Piper, Joseph Durrant, Joseph Burgess, Richard Page, Joseph Fuller and myself. We cane home about 9:30…
Sent Mr Crouch (enclosed in a letter by Beckett and Shelley) the bill I received back from him the 7th instant, I having now directed it.
