Sunday, December 12 1756

In the morning Thomas Davy breakfasted with us, and afterwards he, my wife, self and Mr Porter’s cook sent to Chiddingly Church (there being no teaching at our church on account of Mr Porter’s being lame). It was late before we got there, the clergyman being in the litany… We dined on the remains of yesterday’s dinner with the addition of the whiting sent us by Mrs Roase and also a suet pudding. This day wrote a letter to Mr Stephen Fletcher in order to be by the post tomorrow, to be left at the White Horse, wherein I enclosed a bill payable to his master Mr Sam Ridings or order, on Messrs Margesson and Collison, dated the 14th instant, 30 days’ date, No. 298, value 8.8.0, in full on my account due to Mr Sam Ridings. No churching at our church this afternoon. Thomas Davy at our house in the evening. I read 6 of Tillotson’s sermons in the whole day. Yesterday received of Thomas Prall 4/- in full for Gibbs’s certificate, which our parish granted to him.
