Sunday, February 10 1760

In the morning my wife and I rode over to Framfield and both went to Framfield Church, where we heard an excellent sermon preached by the Rev Mr Thomas Wharton, vicar of Framfield, from Hebrews 2:3,4: “How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him; God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with diverse miracles, and gift of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will?”

We dined at my brother’s on a shoulder mutton roasted and onion sauce with a plain batter pudding (our servant at home dining on the remains of Tuesday’s supper). My wife only at church in the afternoon. We stayed at my brother’s till near 5:10. We came home as far as John Browne’s, where we, finding it grown dark, got Mr Hutson to ride our horse home, and we walked home on foot. Mr Thornton and Thomas Durrant at our house in the evening.
