Fine but cold.
Drove Bell and Frank to Banbury to get some paper for the ceilings and passages of my house.
Received telegram from Rev. H. Powell, St Paul’s House, Upper Maze Hill, St Leonard’s, asking whether I was still searching. I replied that I was. A letter I afterwards received from him showed that he had nothing special to offer and that he had found another reason for wanting to dispose of his place, so that I did not encourage him to reopen the correspondence.
John West called and I paid him 26/- for 13 days work cleaning the Plantation at Sibford Heath.
