Thursday May 2nd 1833 Received a letter from Mr Johnson informing me that owing to the unreasonableness of the demands of Messrs Leadbitter & Benson, and Mr H Pearson, Tenants at Dilston, he had been unable to settle the damages of the Railway Company, but that it should bee arranged one way or the other before the rent day. – It is clear to me that the only way of avoiding these differences, and unjust exactions of the Tenantry, is to arrange and settle the terms of compensation before any part of the ground is taken; and make these terms so definite as to preclude altercation afterwards. Looking at the extent of the Hospital lands over which the Railway will eventually be made, I foresee much trouble unless some very decisive and intelligible plan be agreed upon, which I think may easily be done to the satisfaction of all parties.
