Mr Tomlin and myself at church in the morning… Mr Tomlin and my late servant Mary Martin (who came to see me in the morning) and my brother Sam Slater, who came in just as we were a-sitting down to dinner, dined with me on a piece of bacon and a chick boiled, a leg of lamb roasted and a plain rice pudding.

After dinner we all walked down to Halland, where there was a public day, and we stayed and walked about there till near 8 o’clock. I lodged in at Joseph Durrant’s, and my brother and Mr Tomlin lodged at my house, though not one of us went to bed sober, which folly of mine makes me very uneasy. Oh, that I cannot be a person of more resolution!
