Cold wind. Attended Boys School in morning and Choir practice in evening.

Mr Mann came into the Vestry after morning service and proposed that instead of making a collection at Easter from those who occupy pews to pay church expenses, we should have four church collections in th eyear. I told him I thought it would not answer, but that if the congregation wished to give the plan a trial I had no great objection, though I preferred the old plan – as I objected to having constantly to make appeals for money from the pulpit.

Mrs Woolgrove and Miss Dix came to see Rosa this evening.

Ann West came to the Vestry after afternoon service about her proposed confirmation.
