1736 August 4 (Wednesday). Heavy, rainy Weather yet. David rails for kitchin chamber at the [Toup?] of the Stairs, yesterday — and window shutters for Study Window yesterday and to Day. After I had dined I Sat out upon my Journey to Cambridge on Mr. Dowsings Horse. I rode down by Mr. Chamberlains and by Mr. Swifts. One L[ock?] in Company from Framingham to Waterton. I got to F. Champneys while it was yet early in the Eve. F. Champney still in a very Piteous State — often abroad, rarely o’bed.
