In the morning my wife, self, nephew and maid at church… We dined on a small buttock beef stuffed with parsley and boiled, a piece of bacon, turnips and potatoes. My whole family at church in the afternoon… After churchtime paid the poor as under, and also wrote a letter to Dr Stone for him to go and see Thomas Tester:-
