…Taught in School this morning. Asked the meaning of the names of Jesus. One or two of the children knew. Explained all persons names have a meaning whether we know them or not.

A boy named Bishop was in the Class – whose father’s mother keeps the Wykham Arms inn.

I asked whether any one knew meaning of Bishop. There was no reply for some time. At last one of the Harris’s, Quakers, held up his hand very boldly and excitedly as though he had just worked out the problem and got a satisfactory answer –

“Well, what do you say is the meaning of Bishop?”

“A woman as sells beer, Sir.”
