He came home about 10:20 but, forgetting to bring some lined chamois gloves, he was obliged to set off for Lewes again. I then went to Uckfield and bought of Mr Percival Hart 5 prs buckskin breeches, value 2.18.6. I also paid him on my mother’s account 30/6 in full (which money she had before given me). I stayed and drank one bottle of beer and came back to my mother’s about 2 o’clock. I had not been there long before my brother came back… I tied up some hatbands and put them in order for serving the funeral. I stayed and drank tea there and came home about 6:05. I left with my mother in cash £13. This day there has been a remarkable high wind, and so there has been almost continually ever since the l4th instant.

In the evening Joseph Fuller sat with us a little while.
