[undated diary entry]

Killd a Wether which waid alive—

being a middlesized one 103 lbs. Gross
When dressd 60 lbs. nett a 3d. 0.15.0
 5½ Tallow 7½ 3.5
 3 Wool 15 3.9
  Skin 1.3
£1. 3.5

Note—the above at a low estimate, appears to be no more than the worth of a fat Wether—it being imagind, that they woud average the above weight and 3d. pr. lb. is a low price at this Season of the year.
