Visited School. Marked registers. Spoke to Henrietta Harris daughter of William Harris (Quaker) of Sibford Ferris of whom Mr Elley complained that she refused to curtsey as all girls were required to do on leaving school. I told her that if she came to the school she must not expect to be treated differently from the other children. She said her mother told her not to curtsey. I told her she must submit to the rule if she came. Mr Elley told me subsequently that she had not been to school since.
