Date made: c.1850

Description: "Walked to Ramsey via St Johns, Kirk Michael and Ballaugh to see more of the scenery. I several times sat down by the road side to note in my memorandum book any observation or idea which I thought worth transcribing to you; for I had the road to myself nearly all the way."
