Received a letter from Mr Weatherly stating that having four apprentices to instruct in the business of surveying, he could not accept the situation of Bailiff, if it required him to reside from Belford, or to give up his other avocations. An application from Mr John Bourne, who has served his time with Mr W. accompanied the refusal, and Mr Weatherly states him to be well qualified.

Accompanied Mr Armstrong to look at a Bridle-road leading through some of Mr Tweddel’s grounds, and the Hospital’s woods, to Threepwood and Elrington, and as the new Road is nearly as convenient to the Tenants, Mr Armstrong wished on the part of Mr Tweddell that the Hospital would join with him in shutting it up, to the improvement of the property of both. The proposition seemed a reasonable one, but I told Mr Armstrong that I could offer no opinion until I was better informed as to its effects upon the Elrington Tenants.
