Myself and servants at church in the morning… There was a brief read for damage sustained by fire by several poor sufferers at the village of Frimlin in the parish of Ask in the County of Surrey and also several other poor sufferers by fire in the West Riding of Yorkshire; their losses together amounted to the sum of £1125 and upwards, to which collection I gave 2d.

I dined [on a?] boiled plaice. In the afternoon myself and 2 servants at church… After churchtime rode over to Framfield and drank tea with my brother and sister. Mrs Browne in my absence drank tea with my servants. I came home about 7:20. Mr Thornton sat with me in the evening.
