This morning my wife and I had words about going to Lewes tomorrow. My reason for not going was on account of my owing Mr Roase some money, and was loath to go till I could pay him the balance. Oh! what a happiness must there be in a married state when there is sincere regard on both sides and each party truly satisfied with each other’s merit; but it is impossible for tongue or pen to express the uneasiness that attends the contrary. Paid for bread ½d. At home all day and very busy. Paid Halland (gardener) for cucumbers 12d in full.
