I rode to Haydon Bridge - saw the building of a Cow House and Coach House in the Inn Yard. Got agreements executed by the Rev George Richmond for the fields called Priests Pasture, & by J. Corbet, Blacksmith for the House & Shop he occupies. Proceeded to the Works in Langley Barony & was caught in a heavy rain, my only regret about which was, that so little of it came Eastward to Dilston.
