This day has been at Selborne the honey market: for a person from Chert came over with a cart, to whom all the villagers round about brought their hives, & sold their contents. This year has proved a good one to the upland bee-gardens, but not to those near the forest. Combs were sold last year at about 3 3/4d per pound; this year from 3 1/2-4d. Women pick up acorns, & sell them for 1s pr bushel. A splendid meteor seen at half hour past six in the evening; but not so large as that on the 18th of August.
