The hogs have been turned for some weeks into the high-wood, & hanger, where they have availed themselves much of the large crop of beech-mast. The hogs find, no doubt, many trufles in the high-wood, where they are said to abound. Last week Wolmer-pond was sewed, & fished after an interval of almost 20 years. And yet there was no quantity of fish; for the carps did not amount to one hundred; nor was there any young stock: tench there were none; many young perch; a few large, lank pikes; & a few large eels. It is said that the pond is to lie a-sew all next summer. The pond being an area of more than 60 acres, was several days in running dry. If this pond continues dry next spring, more Roman coins may be found, in windy weather, on the surface of the sand. Many hundreds were found when it last lay dry, about the year 1741.
