Tuesday, May 17 1757

…We dined on the remains of yesterday’s dinner with the addition of some green salad. Gave Ed Smith, Mr Beckett the carrier’s rider, 1.12.0 for him to pay Messrs Warriner and Hartley in full on my account. This day sent Messrs Margesson & Collison (in a box) in cash three 36/- [pieces], 3 moidores and 3 guineas, which together makes the sum of £12.

This day a game of cricket was played on Hawkhurst Common between this parish and Chiddingly which was won by our parish, the two last men being in. This day died Master Marchant about 6 o’clock after an illness of near 3 months. This day sawed part of half a cord of wood and worked some part of the day in my garden. Thomas Davy here in the evening.
