After breakfast I rode to Alfriston in order to take a cursory view of Mr Sanders’s stock in trade, which I am shortly to appraise for him. I dined at Mr Snelling’s on a leg of lamb roasted, a pond currant pudding and some carrots and cucumbers… I came home about 6:20. In the evening my late servant Mary Martin came to see me and stayed all night with me. Oh, how simple I was not to be at church [in the?] afternoon, which was the only opportunity I had of being at church all day.
