Tuesday 1st January 1833

A letter from Mr Clayton, transmitting a plan of a projected New Road. Arranged with Mr Spencer that in the event of the Vicar of Chollerton establishing his claim to the Hay and Calves Tithes on the enclosed stinted pasture, which formed part of the ancient land, and, if it is to be presumed, therefore included in t he modus, that the Hospital would indemnify him, and that on this arrangement being recorded in the Board’s minutes at the Hospital, Mr Spencer would be satisfied without any Bond of indemnity. Saw Mr Sample, and explained the proposed changes in the management, offering him the situation of Bailiff, which he at once declined – I then told him the Hospital would not longer require his services, beyond such time, as a proper Bailiff could be provided, but that I could recommend the Board to pay him to the end of the present year, if he continued to look after the Property till succeeded by the New Bailiff – for this he thanked me, and said he would gladly do so.
