Still very hot – no rain.

St James’s Day. Divine Service at 9.15. Only Miss Dix, Louie Thame, Edith Brooks, Frank and the Clerk were present.

John Lively’s wife called about Charles Legge. Said he was so violent it was necessary to have men to watch him and the wife could not pay them. I told her they must apply to Bonner, the Relieving Officer.

Bonner called and I spoke to him about the case. I afterwards called on Legge and gave his wife 2/- to help pay someone, if necessary, to stay the night with him.
