Just before churchtime my brother Will came in, and he, myself and maid were at church in the morning… My brother dined with us on a chick pudding, a damson batter pudding, a piece of pork, turnips and carrots. My wife and maid at church in the afternoon. My brother stayed and drank tea with us and went away about 5:30. Thomas Davy spent the evening with us. I read to him 2 of Tillotson’s sermons.
