In the morning James Marchant took up a coat and pair of breeches for himself. I also sent my maid to Framfield to let my mother and my brother know I could not conveniently come over to-weigh their wool as I appointed my brother yesterday… Rec’d of Thomas Fuller 78 lbs of wool at 7d, and 6½ lbs of lambs’ wool at 5d, which together amounts to the sum of 2.8.1¼… About 4:30 my brothers Moses and Richard called at my house. My brother Moses did not stay, but went away soon for the Wells. Richard stayed and drank tea with us and stayed till near 7 o’clock. This day paid John Streeter 4/- for Gibbs’s certificate; viz., 3/- for the certificate and signing, 12d for his trouble etc.
