My maid and the two boys at church in the morning; myself and wife not at church on account that Dr Stone came in and bleeded me at churchtime. We dined on a dried hog’s cheek boiled, turnips, Jerusalem artichokes and a light and plain batter pudding. Our maid and the two boys at church in the afternoon, but neither myself nor wife. Thomas Fuller drank tea with us. Thomas Davy sat with us some time in the evening, to whom, and in the day, I read four of Tillotson’s sermons. This day the clerk gave notice of a poor rate’s being made at 3/6 in the pound, and allowed by George Courthope and John Bridger Esqrs, and also gave notice of a vestry to be held tomorrow at Jones’s about 5 o’clock.
