…Peter Adams coming in for some hop-bagging, just as we were going to dinner, he dined with us on the remains of yesterday’s dinner and a little piece of pork and some French beans. Bought of a man who called at the door, and whom I took to be a Jew, 3 dozen lead pencils, for which I gave him 2/7½. About 5 o’clock Mr Elless and I walked down to Laughton to inquire after a dozen of scythes I had left at Gurr’s, which I found there, and also to see the church, which is now an ornamenting. We came home about 7:15. Thomas Davy having gathered some apples for me today, he stayed, supped with us and stayed till near 10:30.
