Rec’d of Mr Bristow by the payment of Joseph Durrant in cash 1.4.0 in full for 1 year’s land tax due at Lady Day last… Posted my day book today. At home all day and very little to do. My wife, poor creature, extreme ill. Oh, how this daily repetition affects me. I am quite, as it were, sunk in trouble. My spirits are quite overwhelmed with grief.
Delivered to Mr Thornton the 1.1.2 received of Mrs Elizabeth Browne yesterday in order to pay her hop-duty.
