A notice in pretty good handwriting was affixed to the barn door adjoining Thomas Holland’s to following effect.  “A public meeting will be held in the Barn belonging to the Bishop Blaize at Burdrop on Saturday evening next at 7 o’clock to consider what steps should be taken in consequence of the illegal use of the Charity Money on the 21st inst.”

It appears to allude to the gift of 2/6 for each child who had attended the 250 days, which was made to those of Little Sibford as well as to those of Sibford Gower.
