Tuesday 22nd Jany 1833

Saw Mr Jobling who wished to treat for the Ores, and entered into full explanation with him respecting them.

Received the proposal of the Hudgill Mill Company to give 57/- for the Ores, and £200 a year rent for the Mills. – Wrote to the Board submitting it for consideration.

Had another interview with Mr Lownds who had fully examined the state of the Mills etc., and who appears a desirable party to treat with, if the Hudgill Mill offer is rejected, but he was not prepared to make his proposal, which he was inclined to do for the Colliery, as well as for the Mills. – Rode out to Tofts Farm, accompanied by Johnston to obtain information as to the situation etc of the Hospital Property
