Friday 1st March 1833 Mr Todd the New Tenant of Allerwash Town Farm, again applied to me relative to the Works he required, and also demanded to have included in his Farm two Cottages which have always been let separately, but as I could not accede to any part of his demands, he again threatened me as he had often before done, to give up, and that he would not take possession. It became necessary for me to bring him to a decision, and I told him that I must require of him to sign his agreement, or surrender his farm before he left the room, and as he found me firm he chose the latter. The fact is that the Man has a farm of his own adjoining Allerwash Town Farm, and calculating upon the old system, he took this to get Stables, Kennels, Cart-Shed etc. built sufficient for the stock of both farms, and finding himself foiled in this, he has now given up. – I fear we shall now be obliged to take a considerably lower rent, but I am satisfied that I have acted rightly, and I am mainly guided by the Man’s character. Wrote to some parties whom I thought likely to treat for the farm, and engaged in the office the whole day.
