Myself, wife and servant at church in the forenoon… We had a brief read for the parish church Eastwood in the county of Nottingham, the rebuilding of which will amount to £1200 exclusive of the old materials (to which I gave one penny). This day Thomas German of this parish and Constant Elliot of Mayfield were asked the first time.
We dined on some mutton boiled, turnips and potatoes. No service at our church in the afternoon, Mr Porter preaching at Laughton. My brother came over in the afternoon and drank tea with us and brought me a note of hand from my brother Will… Mr Long and Thomas Davy at our house in the evening, to whom I read one of Tillotson’s sermons. Thomas Fuller Jr made me a present of a brace of carp.
