Friday 9th May

       Rowells from High Barns came to the Office to pay the proceeds of their Sale, amounting in Cash & Bills at Six Months to £325 expecting to be able to give me some more on the rent day, at which time they will enter into security with their relation for the remainder.  Mr Teasdale also brought me in like manner, Cash & Bills amounting to £102.3.  After which the growing Crop will afford us ample security. 

       I went to Dilston with Benson to decide upon the repairs to be made in Teasdales house which must be set about immediately, as he leave it on Monday, & on the 1st June I must turn out here & go to it while the new one is building.  Mr Hunt taking rooms in a neighbouring farm house during that time.  On Monday too, Mr Dickinson must move into Shipleys house, which will have to serve him both for dwelling house & Office for a time, to the no small convenience of both parties.   I trust however in the end, we shall all get comfortably settled.  The Tenant of Allerwash Mill having found no means of discharging our claims, I was obliged to direct the Auctioneer to proceed tomorrow to sell his effects, in pursuance of a Notice given to the Excise & to the Public & fear from the small inventory that they will fall considerably short of the Hospitals demands.
