Wednesday, August 5 1761

An acquaintance of my servant’s (or rather her admirer) came to see her and dined with me… In the afternoon I rode to Folkington (with Mr Laurence Thornton) to get in a debt, but was not successful. Came home about 6:10 quite wet through.

In the evening Joseph Fuller Jr smoked a pipe with me. Almost distracted with trouble. How do I hourly find the loss I have sustained in the death of my dear wife!
