Calling at Allan Ramsay's farm to see some of the buildings. we found there was a good cellar and the house though reported to be somewhat cold in Winter is fairly good looking and commodious. After getting dinner at Bella Webbs, I walked up to see Allan Ramsay. I found he was ready to do some repairing to the premises, but would only agree to reduce the rent from $250.00 to $240.00 I told him I did not think John wouldgive more than $225.00. after tea at Webbs we returned home calling at Everton. {in margin} very close and hot. Annie Sunter away to Guelph on the stage. Margaret & myself drove to Eden Mills and saw Allan Ramsay about his farm.
