Prepared and sent to Mr Fenwick the necessary instructions for the Colliery Lease, requesting him to get forward with it as early as possible, and I at the same time wrote to Mr Johnson. Accepting the surrender of Low Stublick Lease, and recapitulating the terms upon which I did so.

Messrs Donkin & Stokoe Solicitors of Hexham applied. To me on behalf of Mr Reed, offering to let the House I had looked at in Corbridge for one year furnished for Sixty pounds, if nothing better offer in a few days, I shall be disposed to secure this, as the best temporary arrangement, and the office for the present might be at Corbridge also, as far as the purposes of the Hospital are concerned.
