Very hot. Still no rain. Cholera raging in Spain.

Drove Bell and Edith to Brailes and Winderton. Called at Brailes Vicarage. The Smiths were away in London.

Visited School. Mr Elley complained of Henry Bishop’s wife sending a rude message by her child to the school to the effect that she “would have him up to Banbury.” I told Elley I should have punished the boy for impertinence and written a note to the mother telling her what I had done and giving her to understand that I did not think it possible she should have sent such a message.

Cool breeze this evening.

Elleus dixit se audivisse Doctorem dicere se ipsum interfecturum esse quempiam qui diceret se ipsum patrem infantis e filia secunda Domini Manni.

Elley said he heard the Doctor say that he would kill anyone who was naming him as the father of the child of Mr Mann’s second daughter.
