My brother came over in the morning and breakfasted with us and after breakfast my wife and I set out for Lewes fair, Thomas Durrant riding before my wife, and I on Mr Thornton’s horse, in company with Mr Burgess of Rotherfield.

I balanced accounts with Mrs Roase… We dined at Mrs Roase’s on a cold fillet veal roasted and cold ham, in company with several more… Paid Mr Faulkner Bristow in cash 10d and by one bill on Mr William Margesson…5.8.0, which with the 10d I paid him makes the sum of 5.8.10 and is in full on my account. Paid Mr John Lambert 0.11.4 in full. Paid Mr Samuel Newell 18/- in full. We drank tea at Mr Scrase’s. Came home about 9:40… My brother stayed and supped with us and then went home…
