Making Hay - 21 June 1858

I'm ever so proud of Hnaef. With a good bit of weather lately, they're just working so hard on the early hay-making. And he's been out there all day, looking after the cider jugs. An arduous job carrying great responsibility, but he's stuck to it.  He says he knows it's tough, but he feels a responsibility to show solidarity with the workfolk.

I went out to see him just now but I'm worried he may have a touch of sun stroke. His speech is a little slurred and he's unsteady on his feet. But he's bravely said he'll stick to it. He's hoping that having a bit of a lay-down in the shade of the Big Oak may help.
