Received from Mr Hunt the account & expenses of the Sale of the Millers goods at Allerwash, which left after paying for printed Notices & Auctioneers Charge £15.4.6 leaving a balance of £82.11.7 due to the Hospital at the present term, for which there is only a small patch of growing Corn of very little value. So much for converting an old Huntsman into a Miller. He has some claim, I think to be allowed the rental for two years of a Cottage amounting to five or six Pounds, which was to have been repaired, but has never been made habitable.   But there is no likelihood of ever obtaining the residue from him.  On this day we had the confusion of packing all our Books & Papers and removing the Office furniture to Dilston.  Luckily the day was fine.
