I went with Mr. Johnson to look at Mr. Crawhall's new purchase at Benwell.   His intention is to repair (or rather rebuild) the old hall.   This seems to me bad taste and I much doubt its being good economy.   There are some beautiful situations in the park: he might have repaired the present offices for his gardeners' and hinds' houses, fruit rooms etc., left the old tower covering it with ivy and made his gardens and orchard, and had his stables ec. between it and the village; all these might easily have been protected from the east wind.
