…When I examined Mr Haslam’s bill I found he had overcast it 12d, but at the same time he had sent me 13 leghorn hats at 5d and charged but 12d; so there is an overcharge upon the whole of 7d to my prejudice.

We dined on the remains of yesterday’s dinner with the addition of some boiled tripe, a light pudding, a neat’s foot and turnips. At home all day. Rec’d by the post 10 whiting which Mrs Roase sent my wife for a present. In the day read part of The London Magazine for November. In the evening Thomas Davy at our house, to whom I read part of Sherlock on judgment. My wife continues very lame.
