Attended Guardians Meeting at Banbury. Drove Cassie Heming and Frank in for a change.

Mr John Wells called and asked me to contribute to a fund being raised to purchase a cow for John Prophett, one of his having recently died. I gave him 10/- but requested him not to put my name down as I did not approve of the system generally – but looked upon his as an exceptional case, the man not being by any means able-bodied.

It was so dark one night a year or two ago in Sibford Gower that a Burdrop man could not find his way home. So he asked Blind Thomas Keene to show him the way, which he did.
