John Lively called and I paid him a cheque on Town Estate, to £6. 6. 0. for the thatching of Sibford Heath. He told me that Summerton, formerly Baker and Grocer here, has over £100 owing to him in this village, though it is about four years since he left, mostly by labourers working at Mr. Richard Lamb’s, in constant work and with good wages. One or two owe as much as £8 and £10 for bread alone.
