Visited Mr Oddie, Dr Routh (not in).

Visited School: only 53 present – measles very prevalent in both villages and Friends’ School. Told Mr Elley to give holiday next week and keep school closed the following week if the measles continued prevalent.

Visited Thomas Rimell, Richard Haines, Misses Dix and Mr Woolgrove’s new carter.

Lewis Poulton, the new club secretary spoke to me about arrangements for men and women’s tea on Club day. Mr Ainge offers his field and barns. Dr Routh is managing the matter, as it was his proposition to have the tea etc instead of parading the village, at the Club dinner last year. I had spoken of it several times, but it has not permeated the minds of the members till recently.
