Borrowed of Mrs Virgoe by my servant in cash £12, but have not given her any note. We dined on the remains of yesterday’s dinner with the addition of a hard pudding and some Savoy greens. My brother came over in the afternoon, but did not stay.

This day received a certificate from Henry Osborne, dated the 4th instant, whereby the churchwardens and overseers (Henry Shelley and Richard Rideout Esqrs, Will Russell and William Reynolds) of the Parish of St, Peter and St Mary Westout do allow him and Hannah his wife to be inhabitants legally settled in their said parish. The said certificate is attested by Edward and Henry Verral, and allowed by J. Bridger and L. Spence the 5th instant. At home all day. I think last night to have been as windy and rainy a night as almost I ever knew. This evening our servant went to Mrs Virgoe’s to spend the evening. In the evening read part of the New Whole Duty of Man.
