Service at 9.15 am.

Library Committee meeting this evening. Mr Elley came down to my house at about 9.30 and said Mr Turner had insulted Mrs Elley – he was very much excited about the matter – but Mr T appears only to have made some remark about Mr Elley’s not being present at the meeting and leaving him to make all preparations for it. I said what I thought it my duty to say – reproving Mr Elley on the whole for not trying to live at peace with his fellow librarian and at being too ready to take offence.

Called on Mrs Bond.
