Thos. Vincent took out a license.


First visit to new neighbours and to the new house, designated by its past occupant "Wellington House" but by Mr and Mrs Ridout Wills termed "Wylde Green" - less imposing but in better taste. Several new houses and rows of houses since this time last year. 2 by Mr Cartwright, rather imposing in appearance, a row by Spurrier/Spooner/Spencer? less pretending but comfortable looking, and others at Maney by Mr Wild. No game come in, harvest gathered and birds wild.


A Perigrination in unknown lands, once familiar enough, intending to call on Mr Fowler in Maney Fields. I was told "This is Holland St!! going on I found myself in "Duke St". the Old Duke moved across the way and grown in importance, and another still larger hostelry Mr Atkins - Myrtle Cottage, Victor Cottage, and others where last I saw a hedge growing on my way to the Driffold a new road cut thro' the Manor Hill estate to the right.

Mr Eddows capital new house nearly finished, with Rose Villa and Trent Villa opposite the Old Driffold House!!

Poor Mr Dutton in addition to his son's malady shot his companion Mr Arthur/Arthans? in the eye, first day of shooting.
