In the morning two men from Willingdon came to my house in order to take mine or my mother’s shop. After breakfasting at my house they and my brother and myself went over to my mother’s, where we stayed and dined on some beef-steaks (my family at home dined on a piece of pork and parsnips). After drinking tea at my mother’s, the two men and I came home. They stayed at our house all night.
