Thursday, September 23 1756

Very busy all the forenoon… Rec’d of John Vine Jr 10/3½ in full for 2 shirts etc. for Joseph Fitness… My eyes very bad… In the afternoon my wife paid a visit to Mrs Atkins; stayed about 2 hours. This day there was a cricket match played on the common between the tradesmen and farmers of our parish, which was won with great ease by the latter. In the evenings Halland hop-pickers bought their pole-puller’s neckcloth and, poor wretches, many of ’em very unsensible. At home all day. In the evening my wife read me one of Tillotson’s sermons.
