After dinner I carried Mrs Virgoe to Mrs Edwards’s (on a horse of Thomas Fuller’s) where she gave Mrs Edwards a bond for £153 as a collateral security for the same sum due from Mr Isaac Virgoe deceased, with the addition of about £6 for interest, the original debt being no more than 147.6.3. The bond was filled up by Mr Dungate and witnessed by himself and Mr Richard Comber of Wadhurst. There were at Mrs Edwards’s: Mr Comber, Mr Dungate, Mrs Virgoe and a stranger out [of] Kent, and myself. We drank tea there and came as far as Thomas Fuller’s about 7:30, where meeting with Mr French and Joseph Burgess we stayed till about 10 o’clock. We dined today on a piece of bacon, light pudding and greens. Paid Streeter 3d for bringing a parcel for my mother from Lewes.
