- 1873, Aug. 27.
Sent letter to Geneva. Sold ponies at St Mary's Hill to Williams of Miskin. Stopped cleaning of canal. The Coedcae is being finished. Mason's price is ridiculous. Pugh absent again. John the Smith's son ran away as he could earn 13s. a day at Resolven Colliery and only 4s.6 at Aberpergwm. Houses at Pentre Malwod and Abernant Hir need rethatching. Had another offer for Gwain Clawdd.
