Saturday, August 8 1761

In the morning Mr Porter and I set out for Pevensey where we breakfasted at the King’s Head, from whence we came back to Mr Gill’s, where I was witness, with Mr William Henry Benge, to the conveyances etc. of a farm (late Fowler’s) to Mr Porter, for which he paid £177. We came home about 1 o’clock. I dined at Mr Porter’s on some boiled mackerel and a knuckle of veal stewed… Paid 12½ for 5 mackerel bought today. Spent nothing, Mr Porter paying all charges. I gave Mr Porter today cash for 1 bank bill…value £25. Mr Thomas Calverley Jr drank tea with me… Mr Francis Elless lodged at my house, it being a rainy evening.
