Saturday, February 5 1757

At home all day. Gave John Dan 12d on the parish account… This day paid Mr Thomas Smith, carrier of Eastbourne, 1.6.7, being for money paid by him in London this week… In the evening I was sent for down to Mr Porter’s to know if I had any black cloth. I stayed there about 1 hour and ½ chatting about indifferent things. Came home and read the 3rd and 4th of Tillotson’s sermons. Took £10 this week. A very melancholy time. This day the frost began to go away after being in the ground about 5 weeks
