Thursday 24th Jany 1833

Had an interview with Mr Shipley the Bailiff of Newlands and Whittonstall, on the Estimates for the year, and told him to inform the Tenants that I could say nothing to their applications until I had seen all the Buildings etc., and ascertained on the spot what might appear necessary. I told Mr Shipley that his services would be no longer required, he being too old and inactive for the situation upon the new arrangement. Mr S stated his claims to consideration, and as I understood he wished to continue in his present Cottage let to him at £16 a year rent, and actually worth from £4 to £6 a year more, I told him that under all circumstances I would recommend him to the Board to be allowed to continue in his Cottage at £16 a year for as long as he lived, and to be paid his Salary to the end of the present year, and with this he explained himself very well satisfied, and thankful.

Rode to Langley Mills, and inspected the whole of the Buildings, Cottage etc, and in the event of letting the Mills it will be proper to have a distinct rent for the Cottages and Ground, which do not necessarily form part of the Premises. Ordered a Cake of Silver to be forwarded to Newcastle (weight 1146½ oz) on Monday next, previous to which arrangements to be made for its disposal. {a very old wrought Boiler, and some pots and pans in the Spelter Works to be disposed of}

Rode to Stublick Colliery, and examined as to the Cottages etc belonging thereto.

Received the proposal of Mr Jobling to give 57/6 for the Ores, at nine months credit, wrote to Mr Tierney submitting it for consideration, with the observation on his several propositions. Wrote to Mr Martin to offer the <place> to Mr Walton at 5/2½
