Friday, August 22 1755

In the morning paid for flour 1¾d. Rec’d of Mr Samuel Virgoe 10 fleeces of wool, 25 lbs. After schooltime went over to Framfield to carry little Darby’s clothes. Found at Master Diggens’s a journeyman whom I think to be the best scholar I ever conversed with. He writes very good square text, engrossing, running hand, round and Italian hands, Rich’s and Weston’s shorthand; and as far as I am a judge seems to speak Greek and Latin very fluent, and is perfectly well acquainted with all the authors of note, so far as to quote almost any remarkable passage. Came home about 8 o’clock. Read the 7th number of Martin’s Magazine of Arts and Sciences.
