Friday May 3rd 1833 Rode to Grindon Hill to examine the repairs which it had been necessary to make to the Dwelling House etc. and also to see the state of the Sleepers under the Parlour floor which are completely rotten, and must be replaced immediately. I then proceeded to Grindon to determine on similar repairs required there, and also the building a Hemel which is necessary. Received a letter from Mr Cookson recommending Me Edwd Storey a Millwright and Engineer at Newcastle, as a fitting person to value the Machinery. Mr Cookson says ‘he has long been independent as to is circumstances, which I consider of great importance, and before I kept Millwrights of my own, I always employed, and found him active and honest.’ – I shall accordingly nominate this person to value on our behalf.
