Stevens 1886-07-27


Dull and somewhat chilly.

Taught in school this afternoon. Inspected Sibford Ferris allotments.

Visited Joshua Line’s whose eldest daughter Charlotte returned last night from Bridgewater, Boston U.S.A. where she has been some 5 years in service with Mr Prophett, a brother of Mrs Pettipher senior, who took her out. She has a bad knee, which, she is told, will never get well, and as she would be burdensome in the U.S.A. they have sent her back. She says she would like to return to America tomorrow.

Visited S. Woolgrove.
