Saturday 30th March 1833

Rode to Westwood to see Mrs Cowing, and complete the negotiation with her for obtaining possession of the farm in May, with power to sell the Away-going Crop, and having done this I dispatched Mr Hunt to see some parties who had expressed a desire to take the farm for a year, to invite them to make proposals.  I then rode to see a House at the village of Anick about a mile from Hexham, which I thought might serve as a temporary residence for the Receiver, but it proved so very small that I must hesitate about taking it even for one year; tho’ I feel now very anxious that the Receivers’ residence should be determined, in order to settle the Establishment at Hexham.

Transacted business at the Bank on my way through Hexham.

The tenant of Woodhall Mill paid me his arrear of rent.

Had another visit from Teasdale the Tenant of Dilston Hall Farm, who still fails in bringing me any security, and I am very apprehensive we shall have trouble with this case.

I am made quite uncomfortable at the delay respecting the Lease of Low Stubblick Colliery, not having yet heard further from Mr Fenwick on the subject, or obtained Mr F’s report as to the conditions upon which we should let the Colliery.
