The Away going and In-coming Tenants of Lightbirks farm having a dispute as to the amount of the Waygoing Crop, I sent Mr Hunt to accompany the both over the tillage land, and ascertain the actual quantities in Corn, Seeds, and fallow, to enable me to adjust and settle the question. By his report, I found that Mr Coats had ploughed out three acres more than he ought to have done, and I accordingly had both parties before me to agree to an arrangement which I suggested in justice to both. Mr Walton of Whitfield who purchased the Lot of Wood in Dipton Plantation came to me to day and paid me £200, being the amount, after deducting five per cent of his purchase according to agreement.

Rode to Allerwash Farms, visiting the Brokenheugh and Mill hill Farms in my way back, deciding on some little repairs which I had before left unsettled.
