Mr Burnett the Proprietor of the Lands in Hole Liberty paying Tithes to the Hospital, called on me to know if the Commissioners would be disposed to treat for those tithes – I told him that I believed they would be quite willing to do so upon fair terms, and that if he would make me an offer I should have pleasure in submitting it to the Board. The amount of these tithes average about five pounds a year.
