Saturday, September 29 1759

In the morning Mr Elless called on me and breakfasted with me, and after breakfast we rode to Waldron Thorns where we met Mr Mason and surveyed a farm of Dr Duke’s of Battle. We came home about 4:20. I dined on some bread and cheese (my family in my absence dined on the remains of yesterday’s dinner, with the addition of some boiled plaice)… Paid Dame Gower 2/9 for 1 quart honey and 1 lb 14 oz wax received today. Spent (that is, gave a boy) today 3d for drawing the chain.
