Sunday, November 29 1761

Myself and servants at church in the morning… I dined on a piece of beef boiled and turnips, and after dinner Thomas Durrant and myself walked down to Little Horsted Church, where we heard a sermon preached by the Rev Mr Philips, curate of that church and Maresfield, from Haggai 2:9: “The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the Lord of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the Lord of hosts.” (Both my servants at church in the afternoon). We came home by Mrs Browne’s, where we stayed and smoked a pipe or two and came home about 7:50. In the evening read one of Tillotson’s sermons. Oh, how unpleasant is a man without a friend!
