Harry returned from Rossall.

Drove to Sandford with hansom cab on business concerning which Rev F A Wilson had appealed to me. He accompanied me as far as Littlemore Church which he entered. I picked him up on my return.

Habuit ille in domo sua famulam cognomine Honey ex Sandfordis quae eum de falso crimine accusaverat. Ego ei persuasit ut declararet sua manu subscribens declarationem paratam, nullum veritatis in accusatione esse, sua matre praesente.

Took duty at New this evening for Leonard.

He had in his house a maidservant, surname Honey, from Sandford, who had falsely accused him of a crime. I persuaded her that she would, in a declaration prepared in her own hand, declare there to be no truth in the accusation, in her mother’s presence.
