Wednesday 2nd January 1833

An interview with Mr Pringle Lessee of Borewell Farm, who claims compensation, to the amount of more than £100 a year from 1821 to the present time, and at least that sum for the remainder of his term, on account of damage sustained by inroads made on his farm for Railways, shafts, etc by the Lessee of Scremerston Colliery.

In 1823 Mr Locker saw his green wheat cut up to clear a shaft, and daily injuries have been ever since done.

Informed him that whatever his claim might prove, it was clearly a claim upon the Lessee of the Colliery, and not upon the Hospital, that the subject should be enquired into, with a view to a settlement, and suggested that a reference to be mutually agreed on might be the best mode of settling it. He admitted all this, and agreed to defer the matter until I could see Mr Johnson and himself together.
