Sunday, March 14 1762

In the morning myself and servants at church… This day the banns of marriage for the first time were published between Ben Brinkhurst and Ann Dallaway, both of this parish. I dined on the remains of yesterday’s dinner with the addition of a plain suet pudding boiled.

After dinner Joseph Fuller Jr and I rode to Lewes where we went to the parish church of Southover and heard a sermon preached by the Rev Mr George Newton, curate of that parish and Hamsey, and rector of Isfield, from the former part of II Samuel 12:7: “And Nathan said to David, Thou art the man.” We drank tea at John Fuller’s and stayed and smoked a Pipe with him and came home very safe and sober about 8:30… In the evening read one of Tillotson’s sermons.
