Saturday, November 7 1761

…In the evening walked down to Whyly with a cloak for Mrs French. I stayed and smoked a pipe or two with Mr French and came home about 7:20. Dame Hook buying some things in the shop, she and her daughter drank tea with me. In the evening paid Joseph Fuller Jr in cash 36.17.0 in full for his half part of the money which I had received of Mr Tomlin for the hops he sold, which were bought in partnership between myself and Joseph Fuller. Joseph Fuller stayed and smoked a pipe with me. Pretty busy all day. I wish I could say happy in my mind, but ease there is what seems quite banished at present. Oh, could I come [count ?] up the virtues that adorned that happy good woman that I have lost, then indeed might I like her know happiness in this vale of tears.
