Having received intimation that Mr Errington of High Warden could be willing to let his House for one year, and finding it desirably situated within two miles of Hexham, I immediately sent to ascertain the fact – the health of Mr Errington induces them to think of going Southward, and in the event of their so deciding he is willing to let the House, but he could not give me an answer until next week – I shall be quite glad to have the offer of this for one year, as I feel persuaded that by waiting a year we shall be enabled to make a more satisfactory arrangement than any which might now be determined upon.

Mr Hunt has been employed today in a survey and valuation of the lands let with the Inn at Haydon Bridge with the view to placing it in better hands, and under more advantageous circumstances.

Received Messrs Yonge’s acknowledgement of the cake of silver, and drew a Bill on them at forty days for the amount £349.3.4, informing them thereof, and that the discontinuances of smelting by the Hospital will prevent our having any more Silver to dispose of.
