Stevens 1886-10-09


Dull and cold.

Ellen Hone sent note begging for food as only one of her boys has work which brings in 4/- per week. I gave her 3 loaves of bread and some lard. The youngest of her boys looks half starved.

Attended meeting of Band this evening. Richard Gaydon gave up his instrument and resigned. £2 was allowed him, but as his arrears etc amounted to £1. 10, he had only 10/- to receive.

James Hone and W. Green’s cases were reserved for a fortnight.
