Jesse Bishop called at my request this morning. He gave me a written offer to take the whole farm at £120 a year, but asked for time to consider whether he should make an offer for either half of it, which I gave him.

Robert Austin called this evening. I told him I had had an offer for the whole farm from Jesse Bishop, but did not state the amount. He also took time to consider what, if any, offer he would make.

Drove Bell and Kitty Rogers to Hook Norton and Wigginton, and called on the Mozleys at the Rectory.
