Sunday, March 7 1762

Myself and servant at church in the morning… We had a brief read for rebuilding the parish church of Halken in Brecon in the Principality of Wales, the charge of which amounted to the sum of £1100 and upwards, to which I gave 1½d. The banns of marriage were published for the first time between Thomas Emery and Mary Geal, both living at Halland, which standing both in this parish and Laughton, they were asked to neither of the parishes. I dined on the remains of yesterday’s dinner. Myself and both servants at church in the afternoon… Thomas Davy sat with me in the evening, to whom, and in the day, I read 3 of Tillotson’s sermons.
