Good Friday

Filled up Cheques for the salaries & Pensions due on the 31st. wrote several Letters & made arrangements for my absence while on the Northern Estates, providing the Accounts & Stamps necessary for the Rent Day at Belford.

Mr Dickinson went yesterday to the Office at Hexham to get a Stock of Stamps for the approaching Rents, but could not yet obtain payment for the old Stamps that were called in, amounting to £13.5.3 which I hoped would have been allowed.  Mr Todd of Rawgreen has applied to know if any answer has been returned from the Board to his Petition to have the rent of his farm reduced for this year to the sum it may let for the next. I have not received any.
