Visited Hannah Keene who had a “stroke” yesterday, and fell down in her cottage near fireplace whilst washing up after breakfast. No one went to the cottage till 7 or 8 at night when Long the baker, her landlord, went to see whether she was safe. He got help and I found her well cared for. I have always feared that the poor old woman would be either burnt to death or be taken ill and suffer for hours – or even die – without help, as her cottage is a lonely one up the yard behind the Baker’s at Sibford Ferris.
Visited Hannah Simmons and William Fox.
