At home all day… Mrs Weller and her daughter Fanny, with young Mrs Vine, drank tea with us… After dinner sent my maid to Uckfield with a letter to Mr Charles Thornton, attorney at law, ([following] his calling at my house yesterday in my absence) to acquaint him that I am ready and willing at any time to give my security as overseer to Messrs John and Richard Savage for Tester’s debt, which is due to them and shall be payable next Easter, but if they reject my offer, to beg of him to stop further prosecution till after the 20th instant, when he should know the parish’s further resolutions, but, he being not at home, I had no answer. Gave Richard Fuller 12d for cleaning etc. of their mare I borrowed yesterday.
