Saw Mr Walker & agreed with him on the terms for a Brick Work, of which I send his proposal, recommending it to the Board.  The chief advantage to the Hospital being that if obtaining their own bricks, should the work succeed, at 25/- on the property instead of paying 33/- at several miles distance.  Had it been begun a little sooner, there would have been a saving in building the new House.  Made out & obtained signatures to some Agreements for the newly let Farms.  Rode over the Estates of Dilston to examine the work at the Banks Plantations etc.
