…Richard Page brought me today 12 sacks of salt more. Rec’d of Thomas German a note of hand dated today, payable to me or bearer on demand, for the 2 guineas I lent him the 20th of May last, and for which he then left me his watch as a security, and which I now delivered to him again in the lieu of the above note. At home all day. In the afternoon posted part of my day book and really a melancholy time. Very little to do except trust.
