In the morning received of Matthew Lewer 5/6 on account of Mrs Mary Virgoe, and which money I am to place to the credit of Mrs Virgoe’s account which she owes me. Paid Richard Fuller 2d for four porker’s feet received by him today. Myself and servant at church in the morning… We dined on some porker’s feet boiled, a plain suet pudding, potatoes and turnips.
After dinner Thomas Davy and I walked down to Laughton church where we had a sermon preached by the Rev Mr Thomas Hurdis from Luke 1:6; “And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless.” After churchtime we went to see Mr James Shoesmith and came home about 5:10. Our late servant Mary Martin and a young woman along with her, and Thomas Davy, drank tea at our house. In the evening Thomas Davy and Mr Thornton at our house, to whom (and in the day) I read 3 of Tillotson’s sermons.
