Mr Kirkland was taken ill whilst at his studies this morning with something like an epileptic fit of a mild form. I was much alarmed. Got him to bed and sent for doctor who was away at Hook Norton at the time but came during the afternoon. He said it was something approaching epileptical congestion of the brain – arising from irregular action of the liver. Recommended more abstemious diet and regular exercise – gave medicine etc.

I distributed prizes in School awarded by Diocesan Inspector to (1) Emma Webb (2) Eliza Harris who had Bishop’s prayer book – Emma Webb having received it last year was ineligible (3) William Webb (4) Laura Webb (5) Olive Harris.

Went to Banbury and brought out Harry who has come home for a couple of days.

A Vestry meeting was held in School room at which I presided for nomination of Guardian Overseers and Waywarden.

Mr Hiorns came to me this morning and asked me to write him a notice to quit his farm at Farmington next Michaelmas which I did.
