Having heard of a House at Summer-rods near Hexham, as likely to form a suitable residence for a Receiver, I rode there in the morning, but had the mortification of finding that the owner had changed his mind, and declined letting.  The difficulty of getting a House is so extraordinary, that I could not have believed it, had I not practically experienced the fact.  I then proceeded to Corbridge, where I had heard there was a House, and indeed, I pursued my enquiry through a <round> of about twenty five miles, and returned unsuccessful.
