Wednesday, April 6 1757

…My brother came over in the forenoon to assure to come and serve a funeral for my mother on Saturday next… About 3:25 I went up to Mr Vine’s to the audit and received of Mr John Vine for the audit bill 2.17.6, and for a bill of nails 0.6.6. Gave his daughter 12d. Came home about 8:20 pretty sober. I this day received of Mrs Porter £4 and a land tax receipt for 20/- to pay Mr Porter’s rent at the audit to St Michael last, which I did and took a receipt accordingly.
