Fine day. Drove Mr Maclean to Brailes where I took up Mr Smith and drove to Sutton, took up Mr Bradley and drove onto Honington where we dined with Mr Thoyts who showed us his church. In the afternoon we walked to Tredington and saw the Church there. Mr Williams the Rector was away from home as he told me at Brailes reopening he would be.

I learnt last night from Mr Maclean that my dog Juno who was given me by Mr W. B. Morgan, of Bristol Cathedral Grammar School in 1871, had flown at his face very savagely on Saturday last. I therefore sent Webb to the Doctor for some poison. This we gave her this evening, but it took no effect.

I afterwards learnt that Mr Morgan died this very evening.
