29 June 1740
Went to see the camp at Hounsley where their was Many Thousands Encampt Duke of Cumberlands Tent was a very fine one besides Several other Generals and spent 5/-

I can't find a picture of the camp though I've found a reference to one - here is portrait of the Duke - later known as Butcher Cumberland for his treatment of the Scots in 1745.

I wonder what Thomas spent 5/- on. It is much more than he usually spends on his Sunday outing.
