Rode to Wooley to advise the Tenant as to the arrangement of the farm so as to get it into a course of rotation conformable to the covenants by which it is to be managed in future.  Also to fix upon the mode of renewing some old fences. Returned by Dipton Wood to see the land to be planted where some people are employed in clearing away and burning the refuse branches etc from the late falls of wood, & others are making pits for the planting of this season, which it is of great consequence to the success of the trees to have properly done.
