November 2d.  The Wind  S. blowing fresh, cloudy and dark – generally all day, but dry; A poor Fair to day at LLanerchmedd, the fishermen at Wylfa haveing had but few Herrings all this Season to day they took a vast quantity; for William Broadhead of Tre'r Go alone bought 13000 to cure with low Duty Salt to have a Deben- ture, besides a great number bought for the Countrey's use.

Her Estate goes to her right heir, her first Cousin John – LLoyd, Son of her Unkle Robert LLoyd of the County of Limerick in Ireland, who has lived with her in this Countrey these four years, but where her personal Estate will go, is not I believe yet known: it may seem strange that my Mother & I received no account of her Death till next day at night, & then onely by – chance, tho my Sister Catherine Bulkeley always lived with her [there is a gap between this entry and the next sw]
