The spring in Kimber’s mead is dry; & also that in Conduit-wood; from whence in old time the Priory was supplyed with water by means of leaden pipes. The pond on the common is also empty. All the while Well-head is not much abated, nor the spring at the bottom of the church -litten closes, where you pass over the foot-bridge to the Lithe. Perserved cherries, & currans; & made curran-jelly. Not one mess of wood-strawberries brought this year.
