Monday 21st Jany 1833

Saw Mr Thos Wilson, and stated to him my views on the Smelting Mills and Duty-ores, and explained the desire of the Hospital to let the whole together, but upon terms very different from what he had offered. Entered into an Analysis of past accounts, to shew the value of duty-ores, and told him that I could recommend no offer that was not commensurate to it, and that I wished an early decision.

Had a long interview with Mr Lownds relative to the Mills and Ores, for which he was disposed to offer, but considered he should not be able to give 50/- for the Ores.

Wrote fully to Mr Tierney relative to the letting of the Mills.

Application from Mr Geo White for the situation of Bailiff.
