Visited Montagu at his quaint little Rectory of Thenford near Farthinghoe, about 4 miles the other side of Banbury. Humphrey, Rector of Thorpe Mandeville came there to luncheon with us. We spent a very pleasant day and Humphrey drove me to the station in the evening.

I gave Webb a week’s holiday, beginning today, when he went to Oxford, after driving me into Banbury. Gave him £1 for expenses.
