1774 May 19 (Thursday). I walked up to Widow Brighams to obtain her Mare for next week but She is bespoke. Walked to Mr. F. Whipples — got an Horse there to ride to Shrewsbury, that is to Master Goddards and dined there. Agree with him to take to Board and Instruct Elias for 35/old tenor per week — and to begin on the Monday after the Election. When returned home, found Mr. Fisher was come for the p.m. and made the Bench of the little House, but not the Partitions from the rest of the House.
