Buried Richard Wilson. Visited Mr George Dix, W. Payne, Decimus Alcock (out), W. Barton, W. Barton’s niece and Haynes (from Swalcliffe). The latter, a very young woman, quite a girl in fact, told me she was only married last Sunday. She told me she was a Wesleyan and her husband a Baptist.

Visited J. Holland, Widow Hancox, Joseph Green (another recent immigrant from Swalcliffe), Eliza Harris, Charlotte Harris, Thomas Wilks, Widow Lamb, Ezra Green, Widow Hunt, Thomas Aris, Widow Bond, Anna Aris (out), W. Coleman (out), Jesse Green, Joshua Green.

Attended Band practice.

Mr French of Hook Norton sent one of Carter’s carrying chairs for us to try with Rosa, but it is of no use with our steep stair case.
