Friday 5th June 1846

“Self (Nathaniel Bryceson) complete my 20th year today. The King of Hanover, fifth son of George III, completes his 75th year. Uncle John Shepard bad with his back, an old complaint but which he has been free from some years, but is now confined to his bed, and which he supposes proceeds from his bathing for the first time last Monday. Therefore poor Granny Shepard has her son and daughter laid up. Gave Shepard a shilling to drink my health, this being my twentieth birthday.”
