Tuesday May 7th 1833 The whole of this day was occupied in receiving the tedious twenty penny fines, and rents. In the evening Mr Thos Wilson came to me, and we read over the Draft Lease of the Smelting Mills prepared by Mr Fenwick, discussing the operation of the several covenants so to make the details as simple and practical as possible. Mr Wilson again earnestly pressed upon my attention the claims of the Rodderup [Rotherhope] Fell Company and he also made applications for a Lease of so much surface as would comprehend some cross veins which the Hudgill Burn Co. expected to meet with on proceeding with a vein recently leased to them. I told him that I believed the Commissioners of Greenwich hospital would have no objection to grant the ground he wished for provided the Hudgill Burn Company covenanted to employ an adequate number of Men thereon, but having ascertained on the plan what it was they desired, I would bring it under the consideration of the Board, soon after my return to Greenwich.
