Rec’d by Elizabeth Day a note from the churchwardens and overseers of the parish of Waldron wherein they acknowledge Elizabeth Day and Ann her daughter to be legally settled and to belong to their parish. It was signed Nicholas Attwood, Will Peters, John Jones and Josias Smith… At home all day, but cannot say busy. Mrs Chatfield drank tea with us, and her husband, coming to accompany her home, stayed and smoked a pipe or 2 with us. This day received advice from Mr John Crouch that Francis Smith has not paid him the £10 sent him the 18th instant. This day delivered to Mr John Vine Jr his bill, amounting to 18.15.11¾, and received his, amounting to 2.5.6. Thomas Davy spent the evening and supped with us.
