After breakfast rode over to Framfield in order to consult Mr Rideout about Mrs Browne’s apprentice, his time being out upon the death of her husband. Met with Mr Terry, rider to Messrs Kendall and Rushton, at my brother’s and we came home together; I gave him an order… Rec’d of Mr John Gosling, trustee [???] will of Mr Sam Virgoe deceased, by the payment of Mr Jeremiah French, the sum of 10.5.0 in full for the use of the widow Browne.
In the afternoon Mr Porter and myself went up to the dwelling-house of the late Mr Piper and took a rough kind of inventory of the stock on the ground, household furniture and husbandry tackle of the deceased. Came home about 7:20. Pretty busy in the shop all day. My wife very ill, poor creature. A prodigious windy day. In the evening read part of Sharp’s sermons.
