Very sunshiny day. Holy Communion. Offertory 10/-. Attended Choir practice this evening. Visited Mr Richard Routh, John Padbury, Widow Keene Sibford Ferris, Mrs Woolgrove, Mrs Dix and Miss Shelswell, Mrs S being away from home.

Also Miss Dix. She had her boys class and sent John Young to speak to me privately. I talked with him and prayed with him. He seemed anxious to be confirmed – says he was not able to get to the classes in time as he is working at Hook Norton Leys.

William Spicer was not at Church but I saw him strolling about Sibford Ferris and lounging at the corner with some other lads.
