Had a meeting with one of the Rail way Agents respecting the claims of the Dilston Tenants, the amount of which is promised to be remitted in a few days.  Went along the line towards Hexham to see the point at which they could be allowed to break into the bank for gravel, with the least injury.  The Sheriffs Officer arrived & I sent some people with him to turn old Hind & his effects out of the House and let Teasdales family into it, who have lived since May day in a barn, on account of Hinds obstinacy.  He admits now, that he had no just ground for remaining, but says he was persuaded that he could stop six weeks with impunity.  The stupid man will have gained some information when he finds himself summoned to pay the Attorney’s charge, besides the rent.  In the Arrears which were formerly ord.d to be discharged by a Journal Entry, some items were included, the recovery of which seems hopeless.  Mr Dickinson will inclose a list of them with a statement of the particular circumstances attending each.
