Saturday, Oct. 11: Thomas Davy a-gathering of walnuts for me in the forenoon and dined with us on the remains of Thursday’s dinner, with part of a chick boiled… Rec’d of Ben Brinkhurst 7/6½ in full. Dame Cornwell drank tea at our house. Rec’d of Mr Joseph Burgess the half-Guinea I lent him the 4th instant. At home all day. My wife something better, and pretty busy all day.
