A remarkable instance of punctuality occurred at Bentley, in a little old man called Billy Dutchman, a stone mason, who had kept a book in his house from 1767, wherein is inserted the name of every person by whom he had been employed, how many days he worked in each week, and what number idle; what money he had earned each week, summed up to a quarter every year. The whole for the first twenty nine years is £583. 15s. 3d. average, he says, 7s. 9d. per week. --Miller's History of Doncaster."
