Letters – Benjamin Johnson to John Hodgson – 11 Jan 1834

John Hodgson Esq I shall see Mr W[ilia]m Crawhall on Tuesday next when I take up the subsistence money & I will request him to state what he considers the value of Mr Beaumont’s interest in the Allendale Road. Its real value to him as connected with his mines has been at least from £1,000 to £1,200 a year but the valuation must be made upon the probable return that he will receive from the road in future. As no dividend has yet been declared I am quite sure that no pur

It was brought to me and I again returned it to Mr SK Batson observing that he has been many times requested to provide for such things at Glyns in case any of your endorsements should not be paid.

Diary – John Grey – 13 Jan 1835

Tues 13th Jan 1835. I reported formerly to the Board that Robert Curry, tenant of the small farm of Eads Bush & Allotments, who is a very industrious, decent man, had been unfortunately cheated of a sum of money by an Attorney into whose hands it had gone for other purposes & on being called on to make it good was compelled to make an assignment. I obtained from his assignee payment of the rent due at May day and an undertaking for that due at Martinmas, and sent for Curry to come and sh

Diary – John Grey – 28 Jan 1835

Weds 28 Jan 1835: Took advantage of the fine day to go through the several farms in Hexhamshire & among other proceeded to the distant & detached one of Eadsbush, wishing to ascertain from the unfortunate tenant whether he had yet obtained means of carrying it on, or had got security to offer, for his doing so. He happened however to be absent on that business. This is a small property entirely detached from any other belonging to the Hospital & of small value, consisting of only 26

Diary – John Grey – 18 Feb 1835

Weds 18th February. Heard from Mr Crawhall that he intended calling on me tomorrow to have some conversation about Eadsbush, in consequence of which I determined to ride over to Hexhamshire to examine the allotments attached to it at present and endeavour to ascertain what rent could be obtained for them separately as he does not wish to rent or purchase them. I called at Rawgreen and Turfhouse, took the tenants with me & walked over all the allotments. These are the two farms to which that

Diary – John Grey – 19 Feb 1835

Thurs 19 Feb 1835, At noon Mr. Crawhall came as he had appointed but I found him inclined to give very little for Eadsbush on the score of accommodation. He offers to rent it without the Allotments at £25 a year, to purchase it at £700 or to leave the price to be determined by persons mutually appointed by the Commissioners and himself. It was let last year to Curry at £47, altogether & at that time I valued the infield land, No. 1 on the plan at £30 and the poor allotments, No. 2 at £1

Letter – Thomas Wentworth Beaumont to Charles Babbage – 7 Mar 1835

Mr Beaumont presents his compliments to Mr. Babbage and is extremely sorry that he is unexpectedly prevented the pleasure of waiting upon him this evening. Mr. Beaumont entirely agrees though reluctantly with the opinion of Mr. Babbage that any Periodical for the advancement of <truth> without reference to any Party would have little favour from the Public. He is most anxious that the cause of Poland should be undertaken in some literary work, but he regrets that he can see no fair prospec

Diary – John Grey – 21 May 1835

Thurs 21st May 1835 Set out at six o’clock and rode over several farms in the west part of Langley where there are some matters requiring my attention. It is unfortunate that any thing bringing in such revenue as the lead should be so injurious to the vicinity of its manufacture. The Smoke from the Mills alighting on the Fields has a most pernicious effect both upon the herbage and the health of the Cattle, which are frequently destroyed by it, and one drink of the water, on days when the Or

Letter – Henry Peacock to John Grey – 21 May 1835

Esp Hills 26th May 1835 To the Commissioners of Greenwich Hospital Gentlemen, Having had a bullock killed in consequence of having drank the water from Langley Smelt Mill I am induced to apply to you for remuneration, which I am satisfied you will grant, when I state the particulars under which the accident happened and which are as follows. The wall which separates my pasture from the Plantation near the lead <Birks> was broken down to lead out wood and my cattle got into

Letter – Thomas Wentworth Beaumont to Charles Babbage – 28 Aug 1835

Paris. Aug. 28 My dear Sir, Can we flatter ourselves that we have prepared anything for our approaching <number> on the 1st. of October? We shall be in England on Wednesday next, when <Young> will <instantly> call on you. I have nothing <to say in favour> of the Parisian spirit of liberty at the moment. But their coolness and almost cowardice in submitting to doctrinaire tyranny is difficult to be reconciled with their rapidity of <indignatio

Letter – Benjamin Johnson to Nixon – 4 Sep 1836

Scarbro’ Sepr. 4th 36 Dear Sir I have seen Mr Beaumont and he says he is quite certain that Tom Ridley said he had purchased a Poney and asked if he might put it for a time into the Park at Bywell and that he Mr Bt thought he had purchased it of some of the Lead Ore carriers and that Ridley thought he would be able to make a £5 Note of his Bargain by letting it run a few weeks at Bywell. Mr Bt. says he cannot have the Game at Bywell protected upon so expensive a scale. Rodd
