Monday May 20th 1833 Had a long interview with the Lessee of the Colliery, and read through the Draft Lease with him explaining and overruling the many objections which from timidity he was disposed to make. I received from Mr Bainbridge the conveyance of the third piece of land for the Ore receiving Houses, and remitted to him the purchase money £13.5.0, and also the amount of his Bill for preparing these conveyances £7.2.6. I omitted to mention on Saturday that I called on the Solicitors to the Trustees of the Arkindale Company, and was sorry to learn that there is little prospect of the proposed arrangement being carried into effect, and that the probability is Messrs Hall will be made Bankrupts, in which case the Creditors are not likely to have five shillings in the pound. Mr Hunt is daily engaged in examining and measuring the Drains which have been made on the several Estates, and this will continue to occupy the whole if his time until the rent-day.
