(Lord’s day). Before church time walking with my father in the garden contriving. So to church, where we had common prayer, and a dull sermon by one Mr. Case, who yet I heard sing very well. So to dinner, and busy with my father about his accounts all the afternoon, and people came to speak with us about business.
Mr. Barnwell at night came and supped with us. So after setting matters even with my father and I, to bed.
In the garden,
is a sin
