At home all day. Sent by Goldsmith’s carter to Mrs Roase in Lewes one bill, value 15.5.6… I received by the same carrier a letter from Mrs Roase wherein she acknowledges the receipt of the bill… We dined on some boiled tripe and perry sop. In the evening my wife and I papered up about 60 parcels of tobacco, and in the later part of the evening read 3 of Tillotson’s sermons. A prodigious quantity of rain fell this evening. In the day read part of several new almanacs which came down today, and I doubt but few will be sold by reason of the additional duty of one penny on the sheet, and two pence on the stitched.
