Paid Joseph Fuller in cash 0.4.4, in full for the following meat bought of him today:

1 bullock’s cheek0.0.10
6 lbs beef0.1.5½
1 leg of mutton 8 1/4 lbs0.2.0½

I dined on a piece of beef boiled, a piece of pork and turnips. In the evening went down to Joseph Fuller’s, where I stayed and supped and came home about 10:10. At home all day, and pretty busy; but yet it is a most melancholy time: the pleasure I used to find in the company of that most valuable creature is now all heavy upon my mind.
