Thomas Finds a Job

March 29 1738 - Went to Mr Paynes Silk Mercer behind St Clements by the Strand to help him in the shop until I gott a place for my vittles and stayed with him till the 13th April.

Here is a picture of St Clements as it was that day. A few years earlier and it would have had a shorter tower. Today it is the church rebuilt after World War II, but it is still in the same place and Thomas would surely recognise it.
