Visited John Horsman and his wife.

W. Brown the Baker, a bad living man, is ill. I sent Webb to enquire how he was and to ask whether he would like to see me.

The woman Tennant who lives with him, in a doubtful capacity, replied that he was very bad, and did not want to see anyone. He has not been to Church since I have been here, nor perhaps for many years before, and is a notorious drunkard. I have spoken to him about his evil ways to no purpose, so far as I can see, and I believe my predecessors did the same.
