Finished hay making at the “Slinket”. There is said to be 2 tons well got up.
I have employed
- B Messenger, mowing: 8s.
- ditto, carting: 3s. 6d.
- Widows Young and Robinson, 5½ days at 1/6, 8s. 3d.
?Superintended? by Percival Webb to whom I gave 3/- as a present.
Mr Herbert called and paid me his rent to Lady-day last. He charged me £6 per ton for hay and 5/- per week for mare in his field 4 weeks, although I understood when last I spoke to him that I was to have the “bite” in the orchard. We have now arranged that he is to have permission to turn sheep or cattle into the “Slinket” and I am to send the mare into the home fields.
