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 shew to me whether he had any prospect of continuing in the Farm after next May – for if not I must not loose the present season for letting it, though I should be glad if he could find friends to assist him, to recommend the Commissioners to allow him to remain, which I thought they would be inclined to do in consideration of his misfortune. He came to me today, & said that in a fortnight he hoped to have his Affairs settled, and then he would bring forward friends who would keep him in the farm.
