Spoke to Robert Austin about the younger of his two apprentices (a workhouse boy from Shipston Union) who is in a rapid decline and quite unable to earn his living. The doctor can do nothing for him. Austin said he would gladly repay a proportion of premium if the Guardians would cancel his indentures. I promised to make inquiries and help him if I could.
