I rode as far as Wark for the first time, saw the work which had been done under Mr Storey’s obliging direction, to secure the foundation of the Pound fold wall which had been undermined by the adjoining Brook, & the wall itself rebuilt.  Called upon the Rev Mr Baggs to inquire into the nature of a complaint he had made to me by Letter respecting an encroachment he imagined had been made by persons using a part of the field.
