I seet out upon my journey to Britton Hall and London taking my servant Noel with me.   We left N.Castle at 1/4 before 6 in the Leeds coach and reached Leeds soon after 7 at night.  I went on the outside the whole way and we travelled safely and by no means unpleasantly.   As I sat on the Box with the coachman I was not much annoyed by the dust; I saw the country to advantage and had the means of enquiring as to the names of places ec.
Britton Hall is Bretton Hall, the seat of the Beaumonts.   Only the relevant part of the diary entry published by Hughes is included here
