I enclosed to Mrs Grey of Whickham her half years payment of £25.  Wrote to Mr Fenwick regarding the arrears due by Robinson of Needlesshall which should be now paid. Settled several accounts with Mr Parkin & Mr Hunt respecting the Woodlands, & with references to allowances for repairs, draining etc to be repaid to the Tenants at the receipt of their rents.  My present distance from the Office is an inconvenience & waste of time, affording proof of the advantage of the new arrangement, when the house & Office will be under the same roof.  An establishment in Hexham with a House at the distance of a Mile or two, as Mr Hopper suggested, would have been a great interruption to business & a useless occupation of time.
