Monday 4th Feby 1833 Called upon the Tenant of Eastbrokenhaugh Farm to request the settlement of his arrears, and to inform him that I must forthwith distrain unless he came to some settlement – His arrear stands £189.6.8 and he quits at May, when there will be a years rent in addition, £352; and the value of his Way-going Crop will be perhaps £300 – Having heard his statement, and calculated how far I might safely grant indulgence, I told him that if his Son would join him. In giving me a promissory note for £189.6.8 payable £100 on the 31st March, and £89.6.8 on the 12th May, I would give him that time, upon the clear understanding that if the £100 was not paid when due, I should immediately distrain for the arrears, including the November rent.- Received a letter from Mr Crawhall transmitting a Resolution of the Committee of Directors of the Carlisle Railway Company, acceding to my request relative to the compensation of the Hospital Tenantry, and appointing Mr Benj[amin] Johnson to assess the value of Land and damages. Rode to Whitechapel Farm, and inspected the several fields requiring fencing and draining and examined into the several repairs and Buildings desired by the Tenant. Called at Lipwood and Lipwoodwell on returning and examined these farms also.
