Mr Fenwick having come to me according to appointment , and brought me his report, and the conditions on which he would recommend the letting of the Colliery, I was glad to find that I had in every essential point protected the interests of the Hospital, and in a manner more satisfactory to my own mind than is proposed by Mr Fenwick – I therefore desired Mr F. to read over the terms I had promulgated, and tell me if he considered any part objectionable, which he did, and reported them to be satisfactory – one or two minor precautions suggested by Mr F.  I shall take care of in covenanting  with the accepted party.

I then proceeded to my private room, opened the tenders, and wrote and sealed my report to the Board, before I would allow myself to be disturbed by anyone, for my anxious wish is to satisfy every individual interested in these proposals that full and impartial justice is done to him.
