Sunday, July 1 1759

Myself only at church in the morning. We had a sermon preached by the Rev Mr Chalice, curate of Ripe (Mr Porter preaching himself at Ripe), from the former part of Romans 13:7: “Render therefore to all their dues.”

Mr Francis Elless dined with us on some peas and a piece of bacon boiled. My wife, self and servant at church in the afternoon. Mr Chalice preached here again; the text the same as in the morning… According to my opinion Mr Chalice is a very indifferent orator, either for a good delivery or a good discourse. In the forenoon and the evening read three of Tillotson’s sermons.
