Mr Hunt wishing to go to Newcastle on private business, I arranged with him to inspect Throckley farms, and instructed him as to the circumstances and conditions under which he might order certain works which had been applied for by the Tenantry.

Entered into an agreement with Mr Lownds to sell him the whole of our stock of Lead, and to deliver the same to him at Newcastle before the 12th of May next, for which he is to pay Thirteen pounds per Fodder for Refined Lead, and twelve pounds per Fodder for all the other sorts – the whole to be paid for on the 1st of December next.  I offered at these terms to the Hudgill company, with credit to the end of December, but Mr Wilson would not give it me; and considering the responsibility of the party I consider this a very satisfactory bargain.
