Sunday 25th January 1846

“Wet morning. Went not to church in consequence thereof, but instead to Tillman’s Coffee Shop and read the news of the week. Boiled leg of mutton and turnips for dinner.  Afternoon, waited about Rathbone Place but to no purpose, therefore proceeded to Tottenham Court Chapel and Burial Ground, and there looked the tomb stones over, after which I met Ann Fox and took walk round Regents Park etc. Had pint beer and biscuits at public house in Great Portland Street. Got home just as the rain commenced. Ann Fox made me present of a very nice silk hand kerchief. Paid Granny Shephard for stockings, cloth for new shirt, and neckhand kerchiefs.”
