Sunday, November 25 1759

My wife, self and servant at church in the morning… Charles Vine and Ann Fuller asked their last time. We had a proclamation read for a day of general thanksgiving to Almighty God for his manifold mercies vouchsafe to this our happy isle (on the 29th of this instant).

We dined on the remains of Friday’s dinner, with a raisin suet pudding and potatoes. Myself, wife and servant at church in the afternoon… Rec’d of John Cayley (by the payment of his wife) in cash 2.7.6 which I am to send to Mr James Burfield of Steyning, It being in full for 1 year’s rent due at St Michael last for that part of the house in which the wife of William Burrage lives. In the evening Thomas Davy and Mr Thornton at our house, to whom I read two of Tillotson’s sermons. At home all day, except being at church.
