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.
