Wednesday, July 5 1758

At home all the forenoon though but very little do. About noon we had a very heavy shower of rain which lasted near half an hour… About 3 o’clock I walked down in the park where there was a match of cricket played between our parish and the parish of Framfield when our parish was beaten by about 57 runs. There were two innings played out of both sides though Framfield fetched as many their first innings as this parish did at both, and in my judgment Framfield are the best gamesters in each part. I lost about l½d and came back about 8:40. Mr Thomas Calverley Jr called on me in my absence. Thomas Davy sat with us a while in the evening.
