My brother came over in the morning to borrow my horse to go to Lewes upon. I gave [him] in cash £105 to get of Mr Sam Durrant a bill for me of the same value… Gave John Streeter the post 2/- for his Christmas box; that is, 12d which I gave him last year and which he returned again, thinking it not enough, and 12d for this year. Gave 12d to the carrier’s servant for his Christmas box. At home all day, but far from being busy. A thorough wet day.
