Sunday, September 23 1759

Myself only at church in the morning… We dined on a fillet of veal stuffed. After dinner Mr Thornton carried my wife over to Framfield, James Marchant and I walking there. We went with an intent to go to church, but were too late (we having no churching at ours this afternoon, Mr Porter preaching at Chiddingly).

We drank tea at my brother’s and afterwards went up and smoked a pipe or two with Master Diggens and his family (Sam Diggens, an officer of excise in Buckinghamshire (his son), being come to see them and he being my old acquaintance). I rode home before my wife. We came home about 8:30. Borrowed of my brother in cash £10, but did not give him my note of hand.
