After breakfast went down to Whyly to acquaint Mr French with my intentions of allowing John Durrant only ½ bushel wheat a week and also to get him to go along with me to look at Mr Burgess’s roots, which I had thoughts of buying for the use of the parish. He did, and if we like to have them, Mr Burgess has given us the offer of them at 12/- in the place. We were in at Mr Burgess’s and Mr Hutson’s. I came home and dined on a flour pudding and potatoes. About 3:40 my wife went to pay a visit to Mrs Fuller, and I went up about 6:20. We drank tea there and stayed and played at cards; my wife and I won 3d. We came home about 12:10.
