Tuesday 6th May 1834

Attended a Sale of the effects of the late Sir Charles Loraine to make some purchases on my own account.  When there I had a meeting with the Party who have been boring for Coal at Hartburngrainge, which is near to Kirkharle, & found that they had gone through a seam of good Coal 20 inches thick, but that before making any report upon it to me, they were putting down the bore rods in another situation, which is equally convenient & attended with as little trespass as the other, & where they hoped to find a thicker Seam.
