Sunday, August 16 1761

…Myself and one servant at church in the morning… During churchtime my servant’s brother and sister came to see her and dined with us on a shoulder of lamb roasted and French beans. No service at our church in the afternoon, Mr Porter preaching at Laughton.

I went and called Sam Jenner and we walked to Laughton Church… I came home and drank tea, after which Mr Saunders and his wife went home. This day Mr Crowhurst, overseer of Folkington, promised me he would pay the debt of Francis Rich deceased, at Easter next.

In the evening read part of the New Whole Duty of Man. Oh, how melancholy my situation; how am I depressed with grief.
