St Stephen’s Day. Divine Service at 9.15.

Mr Thomas Hitchcox called and asked me whether I would sell him my dog-cart. As I have not used it for more than two years and Webb seems afraid of driving the mare in it. I sold it to him for £4.10, he to give George Harris, my tenant 10/- for his trouble, as it has been standing in his coach house for a long time. I bough the dogcart of Dr Milburn for £16 ten years ago: but it wants doing up, for which the maker asks £10.

The Sibford Brass Band came round. I gave them 2/- on my own account and 10/- from Mr. Davies, towards their uniform clothing fund. The weather is very seasonable; dry and frosty with a little snow on the ground. Hitherto the winter has not been at all severe.

Visited Hannah Keene.
