In the morning my brother came riding over on my colt and dined with us on kidney and heart pudding, a plain butter pudding cake and carrots. After dinner my brother on my mare and myself on my colt rode to Bayley’s Lane, where we bought some earthenware. From thence we went by Wilmington to Alfriston in order for my brother to have Mr Snelling’s further advice on his eyes, but he being not home, we went to the Star where we baited our horses and drank a half pint of wine. We spent 12d, but I having no money, my brother paid all. We came home about 9:10. My brother had both the horses home with him in order for him and my sister to go to the races upon (but I pay for keeping them).
