Tuesday, February 6 1759

In the morning about 6:10 my brother came and brought me a horse and stayed and breakfasted with me, and then we set out for Seaford in order to hire a house and shop for my brother. We arrived [at] Seaford about 11:20 where we met Mr George Beard of Chailey. We dined together at the Tree in Seaford on a shoulder of mutton roasted, a butter pudding cake and pickles… We could not hire a convenient house in the place; so we came home by Lewes where we parted with Mr Beard, and we got safe home about 7:30, sober. My brother did not stay, but went away immediately. Spent this day in all 3d, my brother paying my expenses as I went upon his business.
