My cough was very troublesome last night after I got to bed, but it subsided at last. A very wet day. In the afternoon the rain came down in torrents.

Received 2 quarters of oats (black) from Mr Phillips of Oakham? Farm, Little Compton at 15/- per quarter through Dr Routh who asked me to pay him for them. The man shot one bag into the bin and took the other three up into the little loft, but did not shoot them. He said it would be all night if I sent the empty bags to Dr Routh. The ladder slipped whilst the man was on it with the last bag of oats, but I caught hold of the foot of it and an accident was happily avoided.
