Monday, November 1 1756

My brother Moses came over in the forenoon and dined with us on the remains of yesterday’s dinner with the addition of some boiled tripe. Sent my mother by my brother the £3 borrowed of her the 27th Oct. wrote to Mr Soundy to beg him to send me his answer as soon as possible, whether he [would] like to take my mother’s shop or not. Wrote a letter for Mr Jeremiah French to Arnold Nesbitt Esq with 1 hare, 2 woodcocks and 2 snipes. At home all day and busy. In the evening my wife and I read part of a sermon preached oy Bishop Beveridge at the opening of St Peter’s Cornhill, 1681.
