Thursday, November 19 1761

In the forenoon walked to a fair at Cross-in-Hand where I paid Mr Robert Noakes and Mr Will Noakes £100 in full for themselves and others who were devisees of Mary the wife of Will Piper, and is in full for their whole demand on the estate of Will Piper deceased, and I accordingly took of them the general release, properly signed and witnessed, which I wrote for them the 17th instant. I dined with them and my companion John Piper… Came home in company with John Piper and Sam Jenner about 5:20. Spent 14d, which is on the account of my executorship to Mr Piper.

During my absence my brother came over and stayed and spent the evening with me. A dull melancholy time for trade. In the first part of the evening down at Mr Porter’s, but did not stay.
