Monday, January 17 1757

In the morning received by the carrier a present sent me from my father Slater of a fine spare-rib and some sausages. At home all day. My wife very ill. We dined on the remains of yesterday’s dinner and some hog’s chitterlings. Gave Will Eldridge 12d on the petition I composed for him the l4th instant. In the evening wrote my London letters. This day lent Master Weller the sparerib sent us from Hartfield, 14½ lbs.
