My wife and self at church in the morning… We had a brief read for the parish church of Norbury, or Northbury, in the County of Stafford, whose charge of repairing will amount to the sum of £1130 and upwards, to which brief I gave one penny. We dined on a clod-piece of pork roasted, apple-sauce and a currant batter pudding. Myself and servant at church in the afternoon; the text the same as in the morning [2 Timothy 3:15]. In the time we were at church in the afternoon, my brother Moses and sister Sally came to see us, who both drank tea at our house. My brother went home in the evening, but my sister stayed all night. A sharp frosty day.
