Report received from H. M. School Inspector.

59 presented
56 passed in reading
50 passed in writing
44 passed in arithmetic

i.e. 85 per cent. Some severe remarks about needlework and infants ; but higher report for general efficiency and better grant than we have had before.

Visited School and spoke to children about their passing and otherwise.

Returned Rev A. Short’s Subscription to Sibford Parsonage account, £3.3, and interest 16/6 – as I see no hope of getting new house and his was the only subscription I received in reply to my advertisement and letters when I first came out here.

Drove Bell to see Mrs Mann and Mrs Woolgrove.
