Back from the Assizes Ball at 2 am that morning. JHS was not in the Grand Jury, his name not called. JS's was quite high on the list. JHS accompanied Paulina as Lady Rolle was unable to due to a sprained ankle. He introduced her to Mrs. Palk, Lady Carew & the Sister and also the Rogers, Kennaways, Kakewiches etc. JHS & Robert each danced with one of the Sheriff's sisters. The Colonel was on the Grand Jury, not seen at the Ball. Sir B.Wrey was foreman of the Jury. Exeter very full. Going there again 24 March to dine at Eales's probably meeting the Rogers & then on to the Ball. Many enquiries after JS. JHS hoped he would come to Devon in the summer in more respectable company than Jacky Southcote & clan. H.Jodrell had no interest in Government.. Bastard was better. Division was likely between the Hunts & Mt. Galpin, J.Hunt had bought Belmont, with possession at Midsummer. Pierce Taylor said the Holdsworth must have the living. He & Bastard had been promised it but others thought they had no chance.
