Sunday, January 30 1757

In the morning myself and maid at church (my wife stayed at home on account of her continuing very ill)… This day was read a proclamation for a general fast on Friday the 11th of February next. We dined on some chine bones boiled, a pea pudding and turnips. After dinner our servant went over to Framfield Church. My wife and I neither at church in the afternoon. Thomas Davy drank tea with us and spent the evening with us, to whom I read the first of Tillotson’s sermons and Bally’s poem on the wisdom of the Supreme Being.
