Wednesday, May 27 1761

In the forenoon we had several very long strokes of thunder. My father and mother Slater dined with us on the remains of yesterday’s dinner, with the addition of a piece of pork and some greens. After dinner my father went home, and I rode to several houses to collect in the land and window taxes. Rec’d of Edward Hope 1.11.0 in full for window and land taxes due at Lady Day last; rec’d of Mrs Weller 3/- in full for window tax due at Lady Day last.

Charles Diggens came over in the morning to take up some clothes for Mr Porter and breakfasted with us. A pretty wet day. Rec’d of Mr Peter Morris 2/- by the payment of Samuel Jenner in full for land tax due at Lady Day last. My wife thank God something better.
