Stevens 1891-08-17

Text, letter

Visited School, taught and took Penny Bank money. Mr Robinson said the Education Act 1891 would necessitate an alteration in the arrangement between himself and the Trustees. I said I could not say what the Trustees would do; but that he would not be a loser by the abolition of school fees. I added, in order that he might not think that the Trustees would have a lot of money to spare, that we had been compelled to take for school purposes out of the Town Estate, rather more than we were strictly entitled to.
