Received letter from W H Pym, stonemason Shipston on Stour asking whether he might erect plain head stone in churchyard in memory of late Jesse Baldwin. I wrote to effect that he might on payment of usual fees. That the proposed inscription was unobjectionable but that he must let me see the stone before taking it into the churchyard.
- Elizabeth Gibbs, worse
- Widow Cakebread, who wished to receive H.C. and I have appointed Friday next at 12.
Visited Mr Joseph Dix whose very last moments are almost come. Mr George Dix of Swalcliffe, his brother, Mrs Dix and Miss Elizabeth Dix were present.
Went to Brailes this afternoon. Mr Smith very unwell.
On enquiry at 9 o’clock this evening Mr Dix was still sinking, Elizabeth Gibbs about the same.
