In the morning Thomas Prall and I went down to Osborne’s and took their servant and carried her to Uckfield when she swore herself upon our parish, but could not be persuaded to swear her great belly. I took out a summons for Anne Jeffrey. I came home about 3 o’clock. We dined on the remains of yesterday’s dinner with the addition of a light pudding and some fried herrings. Rec’d of Will Henly 4/6 in full. Paid Mr Samuel Beckett in cash 5.14.0; viz.,
