Holy week – service at 9.15 am.

Drove Bell out this afternoon. Called on William Webb’s wife at the Pig & Whistle. Visited Widow E. Harris and her daughter Mrs Dolman, also on Mrs Lock.

I spoke to William Barton about the notice to me with respect to the allotments. He admitted that it would not be reasonable to expect the Trustees to take £1 an acre when they could readily get £1.10. And that the latter was by no means an exorbitant rent when it was remembered that the Trustees paid rates and repairs. It is worthy of notice in connexion with this matter of the rents paid for Charity Lands that Barton receives no benefit therefrom.
