Sunday, December 2 1759

My wife, self and servant at church in the morning, the text in Matthew 25:21: “His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou has been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord,” from which words we had an extreme good sermon.

After churchtime I rode over to Little Horsted to see my uncle Hill, where I dined in company with my uncle, cousin Charles and Molly, and the Rev Mr Fullthorpe, on a leg of mutton boiled, a shoulder roasted, a currant pond pudding and turnips (my family at home dining on the remains of Friday’s dinner). I came home about 6:20, thank God very sober. Rec’d of my cousin Charles 13/4 in full. Gave their servant 6d. In the evening read 2 of Tillotson’s sermons.
