Monday, August 16 1756

Breakfasted with my brother and spent the forenoon with him, and also dined with him on a hind quarter of lamb roasted and French beans with a bread pudding. We came away about 3 o’clock, and called at my Aunt Ovendean’s, drank tea and came home about 8:35. My brother came again this morning, and stayed until we came home, but then went home immediately. My brother and maid dined on the remains of Saturday’s dinner. Spent in the whole about 12/-. This day the assizes began at East Grinstead before Mr Justice Birch and Mr Baron Legge. Bought at the Wells Locke On Human Understanding, which cost me 4/6, and Mead On Poisons, which cost me 4/-, but did not bring them away because he was to send them me by the news man.
