…In the forenoon my cousin Molly Hill and cousins Bett and Ann Ovendean came to see us and dined with us on some veal cutlets fried and rashers of bacon, a piece of pork boiled, an apple pudding, turnips, carrots and green salad, as did Mr Long, who came in just as we had dined. My cousins stayed and drank tea with us and then went home. Dr Poole paid my wife another visit today and wrote her another prescription. Mr Stone by Dr Poole’s order let her blood. At home all day and pretty busy. My wife not so well again. Oh, melancholy time! My brother sent me by Philip today in cash £10 in order for some bills in London when he comes over.
