Sunday, June 8 1760

Myself and servant at church in the morning… I stayed the communion and gave 6d. We dined on a knuckle of veal, a piece of bacon, and a gooseberry pudding boiled and spinach. No service at our church in the afternoon, Mr Porter preaching at Laughton. Thomas Davy and I walked to Chiddingly, where we had a sermon preached by the Rev Mr Herring, vicar of Chiddingly, from Proverbs 4:23: “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.” Mr Long drank tea with us. In the evening read one of Tillotson’s sermons.
