A close up of a newspaper

Visited Austin Gardner. Mrs Gardner showed me the plans of a new house which they are about to build on their farm at Sibford Ferris. It looks as though it would be a nice house. John Adkins of Burdrop is to build it, and it is to cost £800 to £1000, though she did not tell me so. The house in which they are at present living belongs to one of Mr. Gardner’s brothers, with whom he is at variance, and neither desires to do business of any kind with the other.
