Saturday 30th

Mr Dyson of Bushey, the new surveyor of windows…was with me this morning and one Mr Barnard with him. We went to Mr Bourchier’s, and Green Hall (Captain Tonyn’s) and Mr Vaux’s Place Farm and West End Farm and laid a surcharge on them all…nowhere else. They breakfasted with me and dined also about 1 o’clock….I went to Market after and spent nothing.
