Buried Emma Horsman.

Visited Ezra Green whose youngest child but one died this noon. I found 6 women and 5 children in the down-stairs room where there was a great fire and a boiler with clothes on it. The room was dreadfully hot and close so that the little boy who lay apparently dying could not get much good air into his poor little lungs. I told them they should not be there and that the window should be opened. Ellen Hone and the woman Coles from Sibford Ferris, Thomas Aris’s wife and others were there. The worst lot that could be brought together out of the parish.

Visited Thomas Henry Hone, Thomas Green and D. Hone junior.
