Saturday, August 9 1760

Paid Mr John Gosling 1.18.0 in full for 30 fleeces of wool received by him today… We dined on the remains of yesterday’s dinner, with some apple pie, my wife dining with Mr Long. In the afternoon Mr Long and I set out for Season’s Green in order to meet Mr Elless to play a game of cricket, but meeting him on this side the green and there coming a shower, we came back, as did my brother, who came along by accident. I lent my brother my horse to go to Lewes upon. My friend George Richardson sent my wife a present of half a dozen pigeons… Paid James Marchant, a servant of Isfield miller’s, 8d for a bushel of pollard received by him today. In the evening read part of the Universal Magazine for July. At home all day, except as before mentioned.
