Sunday, March 1 1761

Myself and niece at church in the morning… This day John Inman and Elizabeth Akehurst were asked their last time. And the banns of marriage for the first time were published between William [Alcorne] and Anna Oxley, both of this parish. We had a brief read for several poor sufferers by fire at Stamford in the county of Bedford, whose losses together amounted to the sum of £1333 and upwards to which collection I gave 2d. We dined on part of a sparerib boiled and greens and a raisin and currant suet pudding, with a piece of fresh salmon boiled for my wife. Myself and niece at church in the afternoon… After tea my niece and I walked down in the Park. In the evening read 3 of Tillotson’s sermons. My wife very ill.
