Monday 28th January 1833

Wrote to Mr Crawhall on the subject of compensation for damages by the Railway, and wrote to the Board informing the Commrs thereof.

Received a letter from Mr Bainbridge with an Extract of the Minutes of the Alston Road Trustees ordering the payment of £60 a month, to commence on the 24th Feby, and to be continued until the Interest and instalments due on the £1700 are paid up, and requesting I would move the Board to accept of this arrangement.

Sent Lord Auckland the particulars of the Duke of Northumberland’s purchase, and informed him as to the tolls of Hareshaw Fairs. Arranged with Mr Mulcaster that he should continue for the present to pay the Smelters’ Wages as I find it would lead to confusion to alter the <system> until the arrangements are further advanced, gave him £70 on account for this purpose.
