Friday May 24th 1833

I received the Lease and Counterpart of the Smelting Mills from Mr Fenwick to-day, prepared for execution, and dispatched the former to the Board to be executed by the Commissioners, and the latter to Mr Wilson for execution by the Lessees – when the two are executed, I shall deliver the Lease to the Lessees, and send the Counterpart to the Hospital.

Rode to Warden in the hope of seeing Mr Leadbitter, one of the Hexham Road Trustees, but was disappointed in not finding him at home – I requested the favour of his calling on me when he came near Haydon Bridge, when I purpose to explain to him the course I feel it my duty to pursue with the Trustees, and endeavour to arrange with him a settlement of the question.
