Rec’d of Thomas Fuller by the payment of his son James 1.8.0 in full for half a year’s land tax… Rec’d of Mr French the 10/- due to me from the mistake made when we balanced accounts the 6th instant. After breakfast I rode to Maresfield (calling at my brother’s as I went) to meet Mr Thomas Gerry, deputy receiver-general of the land tax, to whom I paid in cash £71 in part of the two first quarters of the land tax. Came back to my brother’s, where I dined on some cold boiled beef broiled, and pork bones (my family at home dining on the remains of yesterday’s dinner). Came home about 3:40. Spent today upon myself and horse 8½d. Not very well all day…
