In the morning as soon as I had breakfasted rode to Dapp’s, where I weighed up his hops, which was 1 pocket weighing 1 cwt O qr 2 lbs, and for which I paid him 2.19.0… In the morning sent my wool to Lewes by John Divol. In the afternoon my brother called on me in his road to Lewes in order to receive both his and my wool money… In the evening Joseph Fuller Jr smoked a pipe with me. At home all day; thank God very busy. Oh, how pleasant is trade when it runs in its proper channels, and flows with a plentiful stream. It does, as it were, give life and spirit to one’s actions; I think the most phlegmatic constitution must feel its pleasing and enlivening charms.
