Whit Monday. Bank Holiday. Showery and cold. Divine Service at 9.15.

Visited Charles Lines by request of his wife, per Mrs Barton, her sister who, very much in tears, met me as I was coming out of Church. He is landlord of the Bishop Blaise Inn and never comes to Church, though his wife does. I found his aunt, Sally Lines, there. He has been very ill ever since Friday last. He has seven fainting fits when he appears almost dead. He was somewhat revived when I was there. I read to and prayed for him which he appeared to appreciate.

I nursed myself as much as possible the rest of the day.

I learn that our Band are engaged at King’s Sutton Club today. Gardner is to drive them there at a cost of 2/- each, and they are to have £3.10 for the day besides dinner etc, etc.

Visited the Misses Dix.
