After breakfast my father Slater set out for Lewes. In the forenoon my brother came over and borrowed my horse to go to Lewes upon. Mr Beckett made my wife a present of some fine whiting and a flounder. Mr Stone paid my wife another visit…

My brother the 20th instant bought [some] nails at 4/4 a m (thousand) and now they charged and took 4/5, a most charming principle.

In the evening my father Slater and my brother came back. My brother did not stay, but my father Slater stayed all night, and he and Joseph Fuller spent the evening with me. My wife very ill all day, though much better than she was yesterday. At home all day and thank God very busy.
