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.,
|To cash paid to William Ashmore in full
|To money on the last quarter’s carriage acc’t
My brother came over in the afternoon to borrow the mare. He stayed and drank tea with us. I received of him in cash 3.1.4, which, with the cash I received the 10th and 12th instant from my mother by him, makes the sum of 9.13.4. I have paid on her account as under:
|To a bill of spice etc.
…My wife very ill all day.
