In the September chapter of Village Diary, Mr Roberts tells Miss Read about his cowman, Abbot, who is leaving at Michaelmas to take a job at the nearby atomic research station. He will have shorter hours, and his pay will go up, but so will his rent, as he will have to move out of his tied cottage owned by the farmer. Mr Roberts comments that it he would trust Abbot with a champion, and that it has "taken forty years to make that good cowman".
