After dinner we all went and called on Mr Snelling, who took a walk with us to Seaford in order to see a five-gun battery erecting there. We stayed at Seaford about an hour and a half and came back to Mr Snelling’s and drank a bottle of beer, and then went and dined with Mr Elless on a leg of mutton boiled, turnips and a butter pudding cake.

We came home (thank God, very safe) about 4:30 and I think sober… In the morning my brother Sam Slater came to see us, who dined with my family on the remains of yesterday’s dinner with the addition of some boiled tripe… My brother went away about 2:20… Lent Thomas Durrant in cash 2/-.
