Visited Canon Payne and told him that John Harris junior denied to me that any other women than Ann Coleman were enciente by him. It had been reported here that a Swalcliffe girl was in trouble by him and as I had mentioned the rumour to Canon Payne i thought it right to acquaint him with Harris’s denial.

Drove to Banbury and brought out parcel of books for Lending Library. Annie Smith came to stay for a few days.

Annual Tea Meeting of the members of the Library took place in the Schoolroom this evening. 81 sat down to tea. We had singing and readings afterwards and a very comfortable evening was spent.
