Returned to Sibford Gower, leaving St Leonards at 12, arriving Victoria 2.30, left Paddington 3.30, arrived Banbury 5.59.

Webb met me at the Station and told me that John Hathaway died on Wednesday and they wanted to bury him this afternoon. He expected the funeral would be waiting for me at the house – the weather being sultry. But when I arrived at Sibford Ferris I found they had postponed the funeral till tomorrow.
