Banns of Marriage of Fox and Webb are out today. Banns of Sydney Bond and Eliza Green were put up.

Intensely hot weather.

Service in evening at 6.30. A very good number of men. Morning congregation not so good, only 101 beside children being present.

Visited Mrs W Fox who has been  unwell ever since Club day.

Widow Cakebread.

Miss Dix (not at home). Charles Hands has asked her to collect money and pay the expenses of burying his late wife. I told Miss S. Dix that I thought it would be only encouraging his laziness. He ought to go to work like other men, and he might put by a little every week to pay for the coffin, etc.

Visited James Barnes but did not see him. Talked with his wife, daughter and son Charles.

Visited Mr and Mrs Ellis.

Talked with Joshua Aris’s wife who said her husband was too ill to work four or five days last week.
