Snow this morning, but bright and calm afterwards.

Edith Lines daughter of Joshua came for her Penny Bank money, placed there by the School trustees for her when she leaves School. She will not be 13 till May, and has not passed 4th standard. She has been engaged by Mrs Garrard of Brailes as a nurse maid. I told her I could not give her the half crowns till she was old enough to leave school. I afterwards saw Mrs Elley about the matter, as the child said Mrs Elley had told her she might leave.

Took Frank for a walk up Pound Lane. The snow has been very deep there and had to be cut out by the road men to allow of vehicles passing up and down.

Mr and Mrs Davies came to bid us farewell. They leave for Hellidon tomorrow. We shall miss them very much for their society has cheered us very much in our somewhat isolated condition.
