Paid John Cayley 2/- for the rent of our 2 seats in the church. Paid Thomas Burfield 7/6 for 1 dozen beehives received by him today. We dined on a chicken roasted, a piece of boiled pork and turnips. At home all day. My brother stayed and breakfasted with us, and then went home.
Very little to do all day; a most melancholy time–my poor heart is almost sunk with trouble! Dame Durrant made my wife a present of a fat goose.
