Pleasant shower this morning.

Drove to Banbury and took duty at Savings Bank.

Visited Anna Aris and Miss Dix.

Met Dr Routh who told me he wished to withdraw from the Trusteeship of the Town Estate, because Mr Mann had told Robert Austin what transpired at the last meeting which has made the latter very dissatisfied and rude to the doctor in consequence. I told Routh that we could not spare him and that if R. Austin was rude he had better take no notice of him; Austin can not have any right to complain at having to leave the farm, for it was he who gave the Trustees notice.
