Lent Joseph Fuller Jr in cash £25, for which he gave me his note of hand payable to me or order on demand; he also gave me an order for Ben Shelley to take of Mr Evans any sum of money he should have occasion for, on my account, so that it did not exceed the sum of £10…

Delivered to Ben Shelley the order I received today of Joseph Fuller on Mr Evans. Mrs Vine Jr drank tea at our house. At home all day. Thomas Davy sat with us a while in the evening, to whom I read Bishop Gibson’s sermon against intemperance in meats and drink. In the evening wrote my London letters. Bett Mepham went away today ill. My wife I hope is something better, though now really very ill.
