Charles Holder called and agreed to take the Furze Land for £10 a year. Rent due half-yearly at Lady Day and Michaelmas with the customary three months’ grace. Last years straw to be left on land when tenancy expires. He may ask Trustees to allow him something for artificial manure the present year. I made no promise, but said they might perhaps allow him £2 or £3 under the circumstances. The land is left in a very bad state.

Buried Mrs Mary Dix, age 78, widow of the late Joseph Dix uncle to the Misses Dix and brother of Mr George Dix. She was sister to the present Mrs Shelswell’s husband, her father having been the medical man of the parish.

Visited John Coleman, Thomas Cakebread, William Gaydon.
