Paid Mr Thomas Awcock in cash £2 in part of rent due from Sam Elphick of Framfield to him. We dined off some calves’ liver and lights boiled and minced. In the evening my brother Moses came over and, it being wet weather, stayed all night. In the evening wrote my London letters. At home all day and very busy. In the day read part of the 1st volume of The Peerage of England. Oh, what an unspeakable pleasure it is to be busied in one’s trade and at a leisure hour to unbend one’s mind by reading!
