Dame Akehurst a-washing for me all day and dined with me… Gave John Durrant’s wife the 4/- received for them on Sunday last. My brother came over in the afternoon, and he together with Mr Porter’s maid drank tea with me. My brother came over to inform me that his carrier would go with a team to Maidstone Fair on Saturday next, and we together with Sam Jenner packed up my rags in order to go to the fair by him. They weighed 5 cwt 0 qr 22 lbs net weight. My brother stayed and supped with me and then went home… In the evening we had a smart shower of rain, though a frost in the forepart of the day.
