At home all day. Dined on the remains of yesterday’s dinner. My brother and Charles Diggens here in the afternoon. Charles went to Mayfield. My brother stayed with us about 3 hours. I also carried down to Mr Porter’s some shag for a pair of breeches for Mr Porter; stayed there about 1 hour. Paid Thomas Fuller 23½d for 1 neck of veal at 6¾d. Rec’d of Thomas Freeman, by the post, one pair of women’s slinked [calfskin?] pattens. Rec’d of the postmaster 18d, being in full for 2 magazines and 14 buttons which were lost by his late servant. Thomas Davy came in after supper and stayed with us about 2½ hours. He and I looked over Gordon’s Geographical Grammar, and in particular the religions of all nations.
