Wednesday April 10th 1833 Proceeded to Newcastle, and on my arrival there settled my accounts at the Bank, and ordered £3000 to be paid into the Bank of England on the 27th of April. Saw Mr Fenwick, and had a long conference with him relative to the state of the Roads inclosed at Newlands and Whittonstall, and as to the mode best to be pursued for the protection of the Hospital’s interests. Saw Mr Leadbitter relative to the agreement for the Manor of Wark, and told him that altho’ the Bellingham Tolls were never intended by the Commissioners of Greenwich Hospital to be included in what I was instructed to offer to the Duke for £14000, yet after seeing Mr Leadbitter’s minute recording Mr Wailes having mentioned these tolls as part of the purchase, the Commissioners will not make the matter a stumbling block to the Agreement, if other matters are adjusted, and I requested the Duke’s early answer respecting the Close, for which the Commissioners expected £336; observing that, if not included in the Duke’s purchase, it would be enfranchised from all Manorial rights, according to the reservations made in the agreement. Met Mr Martin and Mr Rewcastle in the evening to arrange with them for the removal of the remaining papers etc. at Newcastle, and for the weighing of the Lead now sending down to Mr Lownds etc.
