Friday, September 30 1757

In the morning walked up to a sale of the late Master Goldsmith’s, where, after staying an hour or two and buying a handbill and a pot-hook for 8d, I came home… In the evening my brother came over and stayed all night. Paid Mr Burgess 16/6 for 1 brass pot, which he bought at the sale, but afterwards has a dislike to it. I thought I had bought it at the price of old bell brass, but I doubt I am deceived, which if I am confirms the old proverb that covetousness never brings anything home. Paid 4d for 2 lbs of tripe. Rec’d of my mother by my brother in cash 19.4.4, for a parcel Manchester goods and dowlas had last March.
