Bright and frosty.

Attended school in morning.

Phillips of Sibford Ferris carter to Mr Woolgrove, but a Brailes man, is very badly off with large family. Mr W. discharged him two or three weeks ago. His wife is ill and they are almost starving. She sent to me for help. I sent for the man. He came, and said he had offer of situation at Kilsby near Rugby but was to go and see the gentleman. He wanted keep for his journey etc. So I gave him 5/- for the purpose.

George Harris, my tenant, paid his rent up to Michaelmas last.

Very fine this afternoon. We took Rosa in her wheel chair round Pound Lane, Pig & Whistle, etc.
