At home all day, and but very little to do… Rec’d of Robert Hook in cash 0.7.6 to send by the post to Mayfield for his and Thomas Davy’s club arrears, tonight being quarterly night, which I accordingly did, as also 3/9 for my own club arrears. I also gave the post 2 brass or bad shillings for things, as under:
