There is never any fairs in this district. ...

There is never any fairs in this district. It is only in towns fairs are held, and there is a special field near the town for selling the stock called a fair green.
When people sell stock they give a luck penny to whoever buys them. They give one shilling for sheep and two shillings out of cattle.
Sometimes when stock is dear buyers go round from house to house buying them.
When a man buys stock he puts a mark of raddle on them as a sign that they are bought.
When a man buys a horse the man he buys him from gives him a hedd stall with him.
