Tuesday 25th February

Went to inspect some matters respecting the roads at Dilston & also some bye ways into the fields which have been intersected by the Railway.  Proceeded to Hexham & attended a meeting of the Alston Roads Trustees, saw Mr Walker respecting the making of Bricks at Dilston Park & his settlement of damages with the Tenant, also several of the Tenants on various matters, examined Robson’s Nursery at Hexham, from which I wished to select strong & healthy thorn Quicks for the new fences.  I was glad to effect a sale of a considerable quantity of small wood cut in the Plantations of Whittonstall, which it was necessary to remove for the benefit of the growing Wood, whether it could be sold or not.  The produce will do somewhat more than pay for the cost of cutting.
