Monday 20th January 1834

Wrote to Mr Fenwick desiring him to make application to Mr Pringle of Borewell for payment of his rents, and in default to threaten him with distress of his goods, as he has failed to keep his engagements with me repeatedly & disregards his covenants in the management of his farm. Having heard nothing yet from Armstrong, the highest bidder for Whitley Mill, I inclosed another letter for him to Mr Fenwick, asking him to send it out by a messenger, that I might obtain a decisive answer.

I was occupied the whole day in writing letters & reports to Greenwich upon the tenders for the several farms, upon my communication with Mr Fenwick respecting an arrangement for conducting the law business of the northern Estates, and upon the allowances made to Johnson by Mr Hooper for buildings etc.
