…No service at our church in the morning, Mr Porter preaching at Laughton. In the forenoon my quondam friend George Richardson came to see me. He dined with me on a shoulder of mutton roasted and onion sauce and a currant pond butter pudding. I paid him one bill on Mr Will Margesson, dated tomorrow, 30 days’ date, payable to Mr John Madgwick or order, No. 459, value 25.7.0, which bill is in full on account of Mr John Madgwick. My friend stayed with me till 5 o’clock.
In the evening Dr Snelling came to see my wife. Neither myself or servant at church in the afternoon, and our late servant went to Framfield. My wife very ill, and I doubt not but she is very dangerous.
