Delivered to Ben Shelley (by my servant) in cash £10 in order for him to pay in London for me… We dined on a batter pudding and sausages baked in it. In the afternoon walked down to Halland where I received of Mr Coates in cash 12.12.0, which is in full for a bill delivered to the 23rd ult. of 11.16.3½ and sixteen shillings over, which I had not silver (or money enough with me) to give him in change, so that I owe him the said sum of 16/-. Thomas Durrant drank tea at our house. In the evening read part of Sharp’s sermons. My wife somewhat easier today, though still very bad and dangerous. Went up to Master Piper’s in the morning to assist him with my advice about making his will, there being an attorney come to do it.
