Tuesday 9th July 1833

	After being engaged for sometime in the Office I rode to Hexham market where I received from Mr Errington Ridley £77.19.1 being the balance due for Bark, and paid £80 to Mr Benson on account of buildings at Grindon – also saw many of the tenants on other matters, but failed to obtain the payment of any arrears, which I wished, rather than expected – The prices of Corn continues very low, & in this part of the country it is generally spoiled & of inferior quality owing to the wetness of the harvest.

	Mr Hunt has been engaged in examining and measuring Drains & taking the state of the tillage in Langley Barony for some days.
