Married John Holtom and Jane Alcock at 8 a.m.

Very wet.

Preached at Brailes this evening for Mr Smith who is visiting Mr Kempson at Claverdon.

Miss Wilson Schoolmistress at Brailes spoke to me about a little girl named Stevens from Achile Farm in parish of Brailes who had been allowed to attend Sibford school because it is much nearer for her than Brailes, but having left had gone to Brailes School and said she was locked out at Sibford because she was late. I spoke to Mr Elley about it and he said the child was never locked out, but that probably the real reason of her leaving was that she had been told to bring her school penny for the weeks she was absent.
