Tuesday 20th May

Went to the Office at Dilston & was engaged in various accounts respecting Rents, buildings etc and in looking to the repairs going on in Teasdales House, which is in a sad state of filth & disrepair & will hardly be made habitable by the time I shall require it.  Returned by the Banks of the Tyne, where I am taking advantage of a great quantity of branches cut from the Lot of Wood that was sold there & with which I am filling up some holes in the plantation that have been made by floods, the surface of the Ground will be again restored. 

Wednesday 21st

Drove in the morning to Haydon Bridge & was engaged all the day in receiving Rents & settling accounts with the Tenants.
