Went to Dilston in the morning to arrange some matters in the Office & look after the Work people, returned to Corbridge to breakfast & write Letters - afterwards went to Shaw House to receive the Rents for the Estates to the East of Corbridge.   We had a good muster of Tenants & a receipt quite equal to my expectations, though of course there are many deficiencies.  Two of the Hartburn Tenants, Thos. Brewis & Wm Davison, gave in written resignations of their farms.  Mr Boyd, one of the Partners in the NCastle Bank attended, to whom I paid & £2040.6.3.  We dined 18 in number at 1/2 past three & parted at six, an early hour for such an occasion, but these times tend to sobriety of mind & habits.
