Sunday, Aauggust 22 1756

My wife, maid, nephew and self at church in the morning… We dined on a piece of pork, apple pudding and carrots. All at church in the afternoon; the text in Matthew 26:24: “It had been good for that man if he had not been born.” From which words we had an excellent sermon. After churchtime went down to Mr Samuel Gibbs’s (I being sent for), they having this day lost their youngest child. They wanted to know if I had any shrouds small enough. I drank tea there in company with Mrs Fuller, Mrs Gibbs and Mrs Thunder. In the day read the 42nd, 43rd and 44th of Tillotson’s sermons.
