Ann Walker’s Entry

Anne Lister’s Entry

Washington told me the hunt would be difficult to keep off property – I mentioned my intention of having property divided & told him to give me a valuation – got a copy of note Mr. Adam sent to the hunt – & of writing protestations written by Mr. J. [Jeremiah] Dyson – dearest heard further particulars from Pickles & why the decision whether the hunt would pay damages, was to be left unsettled till Mr. Dyson returned –
