Wednesday, December 8 1756

At home all day… My wife and I papered up 91 papers of tobacco, containing 22¾ lbs. Mr and Mrs Burgess and their children drank tea at our house. Mr Burgess and his wife stayed and played at cards (my wife and I lost 6d) and supped at our house on the remains of today’s dinner. This is not that pleasure as if I had spent the evening in reading. In the morning paid Mr Thornton 3/4 for writing a letter to Peter Adams.
