At home all day. Sent Francis Smith by his servant. T. Hemsley, in cash 4.2.0… which he is to pay in London for me. This day my brother came over to have their horse home and dined with us on a knuckle of bacon and a chick pudding. This day died Elizabeth Elless, and immediately after she was dead, Mr Adams told me Mr French and I would be fined on account of her death. The reason was because we carried her before a justice and asked her to swear the father.
