Very cold wind.

Buried Harriet Colegrave. The wife of Mr Berridge (brother of Mrs Shelswell) residing near Rugby, died somewhat suddenly last night.

Austin Gardner, James Coles and another were pitched out of a dog-cart at Shennington on Saturday. Gardner was driving a new horse – tandem – which he had purchased of Mr. Jenkins, Upton House the same afternoon. It appears that Austin Gardner and Coles were both insensible for some time, the former being cut about the face and hands, and the latter, who was not brought home till yesterday, having several ribs broken. It is said, I do not know with what truth, that they were all somewhat the worse for drink.

Visited Jane Legge, John Horsman and Mrs Shelswell.

All the boys were present at my Confirmation Class this evening. But Mrs Hancox and her daughter did not come, being unwell.
