Friday, December 30 1757

At home all day. Henry Jenner the hatter’s son at Hailsham dined with us on the remains of Sunday’s dinner (the two boys dining at Master Hook’s). I paid him 12d for dressing and lining my hat. In the day read part of Love’s Surveyor. In the evening Thomas Durrant came in to cut my wife’s hair, and he and Thomas Davy stayed and smoked a pipe with me. After Thomas Durrant went away, I read part of Young’s Night Thoughts to Thomas Davy. This day my wife gave our servant Mary Martin warning to provide herself with another service at new Lady Day next.
