…In the forenoon my brother William came to see me and dined with me on the remains of yesterday’s dinner with the addition of a light pudding and a piece of pork boiled. Dame Braizer buying some goods in the shop breakfasted with me. My brother and Bett Mepham drank tea with me. My brother stayed all night. At home all day. In the evening made a poor rate for the parish and made up some of the parish accounts for Mr French. A very cold sharp day.
