Saturday, January 7 1758

At home all day. In the forenoon my brother came over and dined with us on a beef and light pudding with some turnips. Rec’d of my brother in cash 4/-, being my half part of a debt due from John Cottington at Framfield to my deceased father. Mr Joseph Hill and his servant called on me today, but did not stay. Pretty busy all day. In the first part of the evening read part of Horneck’s Great Law of Consideration, and in the later part of the evening Thomas Davy at our house, to whom I read part of Young’s Night Thoughts.
