Taught in School this afternoon.

Visited Hannah Simmonds who had written a note to me during my absence from home asking me to call, as she wanted to see me very particularly. I found that her son John Lines had behaved so violently in the house to his own sister who was visiting her mother, that John Holtom had given him notice to leave : he having rented the cottage at 10d per week for his mother. Now she was in a fix as her son would not give her the money to pay the rent with, and Holtom would not have him for a tenant. I told her to apply to the Receiving Officer, and said I would speak to her son or his wife on the first opportunity.
