Friday 6th June

Had interviews with Benson & Parkin respecting the several building & thinning of Woods etc, connected with their particular departments. Traversed the young Plantations to see that the fences are secure. This droughty season is very unfavourable for the striking of young Trees, yet I think they are coming sufficiently thick.  We are now collecting the Bark into Barns, in convenient situations to sending to Newcastle.  The building of the new House here goes on satisfactorily, for which the season is remarkably favourable.  The work & situation are much admired.
