Sunday, June 1 1760

Mr Long and I took a walk in the morning and he came back and breakfasted with me. No service at our church in the morning, Mr Porter being ill. Mr Long and I walked to Chiddingly, where we had a sermon preached by the Rev Mr Herring, vicar of Chiddingly, from Proverbs 15:3: “The eyes of the Lord are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.”

We dined on a dried hog’s cheek and a lamb’s head and pluck boiled, a gooseberry pudding and spinach… My wife, self and servant at church in the afternoon, when we had a sermon preached by the Rev Mr Jones, curate of Waldron, from part of I Corinthians 2:9:… “Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.” We had a brief read for the parish church of Roxtler in the county of Salop, to which I gave 2d. James Trill and Lucy Mott were out asked.
