Thursday 15th

Received from the Clerk of the Hexham Road Trustees £70, being the annual payment which they engaged to make to the Commissioners, due in the 13th instant.  Having heard from Mr Morton that he had seen Mr Forster who had expressed his willingness to undertake the inspection of the Hospital Collieries I wrote to him describing the local situation & character of the various Collieries & asking him to inform me as to the terms upon which he would come to examine them.  Went to do business at the Office at Dilston, preparing for the ensuing receipt of Rents, and afterwards to Hexham to get my Bank Book filled up etc.  We have at length received an order from the Stamp Office, for an equivalent number of Stamps of the new impression to those we returned of the old.
