Paid Joseph Durrant in cash 2.5.9, being for the same sum paid for my use by Mr George Tomlin, hop factor (who sold Durrant’s hops), to Messrs Margesson and Collison. Notwithstanding Durrant owes me money and has done these 18 months past, he was so unreasonable and I think I may say unjust as to ask me for the above; but Oh, such meanness of spirit!… The gardener at Halland made my wife a present of some grapes in gratuity for my trusting him sometimes (only let me observe the difference in people’s tempers). In the evening read 2 of Tillotson’s sermons.
