Tuesday 4th February 1834

Had a meeting with some of the accepted Tenants for the Farms respecting their Covenants etc.  Rode to Newtonhall Farm & then through Thornbrough to examine the success of some draining which I had marked out at the former, & at both places to look to the culling & dressing of some old Hedges under my directions, with the hope of restoring them.   No particular occurrence today, requiring notice.
