In the morning Master Piper gave me in cash 11.10.0 and a receipt for 1 year’s land tax (due at Lady last) for 2.8.0, for me to send by the carrier to Mr Allen Chatfield at Croydon for 1 year’s rent due to Mrs Mary Mills at Carshalton for her land which is used by Master Piper.

After breakfast Mr Burgess and myself went to talk to Anne Jeffrey and the servant of Thomas Osborne, who we had heard were both with child. But upon talking to them we have no reason to think so. Paid Mr Heaver, the miller at Isfield, 2.3.10 in full for 1 sack of flour and 3 bushels of pollard received by him today. We dined on the remains of yesterday’s dinner with the addition of a plain rice pudding for my brother. After dinner my brother and I went down to look at Mr French’s wool, but he was not at home. Mrs Parsons and Anne Prall drank tea at our house. In the evening my brother and I went down to Whyly and looked at Mr French’s wool, which I agreed to give him 1.0.6 per tod for; and if it turned out well, I was to give him 6d more per tod. We came home about 10 o’clock.
