Reed the Tenant of Plankey Mill came to me this morning to report the dangerous state of the Axle of his Water wheel, and at the same time stated that a Tree near the Mill was adapted to the purpose, and if cut down and prepared, the putting it in might be deferred till the necessity actually arose – I promised him that his Axle should be early inspected, and the subject considered. Proceeded to Corbridge and met Mr Grey, to whom I delivered his Warrant, and surrendered my office and trust, transferring to him all Books, accounts, and papers; and arranging and conferring on the several matters now engaging attention.

Green the Tenant of Corbridge Town farm applied to me to ascertain the terms on which the Leazes were sold to Sir Edward Blackett; when I explained that it was subject to Green’s keeping possession during his Lease, and to our paying £75 a year to Sir Edward Blackett for that period: but that there was no objection, in the event of an agreement between him and Sir Edward to deduct the £75 from his rent, on Sir Edward consenting to such an arrangement in lieu of our paying the £75 to him.
