In the morning myself and servants at church… We had a proclamation read for a general fast and humiliation of our sins before Almighty God and to implore His blessings on our fleets and armies, to be held Friday the 12th day of March next. The banns of marriage for the 1st time were published between John Thomson of the parish of Framfield and Mary Oliver of this parish.

I dined on the remains of yesterday’s dinner, with the addition of some sausages. After dinner myself and Thomas Davy walked to Little Horsted Church, where we heard a sermon preached by the Rev Mr Philips, curate of that parish and Maresfield, from the 40th verse of the 14th chapter 1st Epistle of Paul to the Corinthians: “Let all things be done decently and in order.” After church (I having some business with my uncle Hill) we walked down to his house, where we stayed and drank tea and came home about 7:50. In the evening one of my servants went to sit up with Molly French, who is very ill. A very windy evening and a severe storm of hail about 9:20. In the evening read part of Young’s Night Thoughts.
