Monday, May 4 1761

We dined on the remains of yesterday’s dinner. Rec’d of John Piper in cash 10.13.0½ and a land tax receipt for 2.4.0, two bills of repairs 1.0.11½, which together makes the sum of 13.18.0, which I am to send to Mr Allen Chatfield at Croydon and is in full for l year’s rent due from Mr Will Piper deceased to Mrs Mary Mills at old Lady Day last.

In the evening my friend John Breeden called on me in [his] road from Nutley Fair and stayed at our house all night. We balanced accounts… My wife, poor creature, very ill though I hope somewhat easier. Paid John Cayley the 3/8 I received of Mr John Morris the 2nd instant.
