Mary Heath a-washing; for me all day and dined with me on the remains of yesterday’s dinner, with the addition of a boiled carp and a light pudding. My brother came over in the afternoon… I received of him 10/3 for a ream of writing paper. Rec’d of Mrs Browne in cash 2.11.3 and a receipt for half a year’s land tax, 10/-, which together makes the sum of 3.1.3 and is in full for half a year’s rent due to the executors of the Rt Hon Henry Pelham Esq at Lady Day last, and which I am to pay at the audit for her tomorrow…

Mr Long, Thomas Emery and John Vernon spent the evening at my house, they having bought some things in the slop. At home all day and pretty busy, but surely a very melancholy time. In the evening read part of a volume of The Spectator.
