Sent Mr Francis Weller (by the post) at Mayfield 1 bill on Mr William Margesson…7.7.0, which with repairs and taxes outset is in full for 1 year’s rent [on the shop] due at Lady Day last (OS).

Mr Long dined with me on the remains of yesterday’s dinner, with some fried eels (given me yesterday by John Cayley). In the evening rode to Hartfield to see my wife, whom I found (poor creature) extremely ill. To describe my grief is beyond my power; therefore let a sincere and silent tear paint it in more lively colors to them that read this hereafter. In the afternoon my niece went over to Horsted and stayed all night.
