I have people all this week scowring the River, that fences Cae'r LLoriau in Coydan to the E. & S.E. & makeing there a good Hedge, which considering the vast number of Big Stones in the Bottom & in the Bank, seems never to have been scowred so before, all which were taken up, & put in the Hedge , pd. 3d to day for Ale.
