Thursday 3rd

Attended the Agricultural Show of Glendale Ward, at Wooler, where I had so often presided, & where I again found myself in the Chair, surrounded by a multitude of old friends.  a great quantity of superior Stock was exhibited for Sweepstakes of all kinds & for sale. The market for fat Cattle & Sheep, is rather on the decline.  Heard today from Mr Fenwick of his intention of meeting the Scremerston Tenants at Belford on tuesday next respecting the answer to the claim for Tythe, & wishing to see their Leases or Agreements,  I therefore gave notice to such as I met at Wooler, to bring them in their pockets as well as their money.
