Tuesday April 30th 1833

Accompanied the Tenant of Haydon Town Farm, and inspected the Dwelling House, and the whole of the farm buildings, which are in a bad state, and need very considerable repairs and alterations, but it will be my best endeavour to arrange what is necessary at as little expense as possible, but whatever expense has to be incurred should be done at the commencement of a lease.

The tenants at Gairshield and Bagraw brought me £45 as part of the £150, I was to have received, but they promise an early settlement of the remainder, and I must give them a little time.

Wrote to Mr Lownds to request his further instructions for sending down the Common and Slag Lead to Newcastle.

Received a letter from Mr Hugh Taylor, stating that the Duke of Northumberland declines to purchase the Glebe land at Wark – I confess myself much disappointed at this, but have no doubt of being able to obtain a purchase by the time it comes into possession, which it must be our endeavour to do.
