Visited William Hall whose baby is ill. Henry Tarver whose wife says he is at work Swede cleaning, but will not be able to earn more than 7/6 a week at it. They have a lodger, a young man belonging to Tysoe and who is working for Mr Nicholls on Mr Payne’s farm. He pays her 1/6 per week which is some help to them.

I hear that when Mr. Dodgson, Curate of Brailes, recently married, was here with his wife on Monday, my little Frank age 5 years 3 months looked through the railings by the stairs very earnestly and asked “Have you been very happy lately Mr Dodgson?” On his replying that he had, Frank remarked “I am so glad”.
