Friday 1st February 1833 Wrote to the Board reporting on Mr Stephenson’s petition etc. Saw the Lessees of Fourstones Colliery who consented to an equitable compensation to Mr Snowball. Received the Draft Agreement for the sale of Wark Manor, from Mr Bicknell, read it over, and made the necessary explanation and corrections. Received from Mr Wailes the receipt for last months retiring allowance, requesting I would remit him the amount, explaining that not anticipating the changes which had taken place, he had in his money arrangements calculated on the usual monthly receipt of Salary. Complied with this request by remitting him a cheque for £76.7.9. Saw Mr Wm Benson of Dilston New town South Farm, and gave him until next Wednesday to bring me sufficient security for all arrears to be paid in May next, and that unless he did so, I would distrain, and re-let the Farm. – The relatives of this young Man have ample means, and there is an evident attempt to over reach the Hospital. Heard from Mr. Cookson expressing his readiness to accede to my terms, and that he would give me a cheque for the Lead Wharf, on my giving him possession. Obtained a Bill for £149.14.4 to remit to Mr.Tayloe in payment of his account for Salary &c for 1832 & sent it to Mr. LeGeyt with the receipt for signature.
