Saturday April 6th 1833

Received an application from Mr Brandling for his Quarter’s Pension, which I answered by requesting him to furnish me with the receipt, and I would remit him the amount.

Received several proposals for renting the Colliery, upon the terms I had advertised, but I determined on not breaking the seals of any until I had seen Mr Fenwick, and read his report, that in the event of my deeming any alterations necessary, I might be enabled to return the sealed tenders, and give the parties the option of re-considering their offer.

Mr Hunt was engaged in inspecting the farms West of Langley, and I arranged with him to proceed on Monday on a week’s leave which I promised he should have to settle his private affairs, as it would be the least inconvenient to spare him during my inspection of the Northern District.
