Visited Heath Farm. Stephen Hands not at home. Examined work done by masons. It appears to be satisfactory. Some slates etc which remained over the numbers I ordered were brought there to be taken care of. There are about 10 slates and 2 ridge tiles with about half a bushel of lime. Spoke to Poulton about the carpenters’ work. They have had to leave it but will resume tomorrow or Wednesday. Gave strict orders that nothing was to be done beyond what had been pointed out and that nothing was to be done inside the house without special instructions.
“tomorrow or Wednesday” is an odd phrase, since tomorrow is Wednesday.
