Thursday 3rd January 1833

Saw Mr Bell, Bailiff of Hart-burn Grange etc., and told him the Hospital would not longer require his services, but that I should recommend the Board to allow him a Pension of £20 a year.

Wrote to Mr Crowhall on the damage done by the Railway Company to the Tenants.

Saw Mr Cookson relative to the Wharf, and also arranged with him as to the Rents of Meldon, the Hospital to receive to Nov[embe]r and repay to him from Septr. Mr Cookson claimed for dilapidations on Needlesshall Farm, on the ground that certain repairs were ordered, and only waited for the Bailiff and Tenant to agree as to details. Informed him that his purchase was subject to the existing state, but that the Hospital had also a claim on him for Machinery, and the two should be considered together. 

Received Rent 10£ from Teasdale Dilston Hall, £20 from Makepeace Lee, and £116 from I & A Fewster.

Sundry small rents £155.0.10

Forwarded to Yonge & Co a plate of Silver, weight 771 ounces.
