Text, letter

St Stephen’s day. Divine Service at 11 a.m. Children’s Entertainment to public in Schoolroom at 7 this evening. “Christy Minstrels“, “Recitations” and a Cantata called “Santa Claus”.

The Singing was good, but the recitations were imperfectly known and said in some cases without any expression whilst “poor letter H” was much abused. Mrs Langley had taken great pains with the singing, but had stopped there.

Mr Platt, a friend and visitor of Dr Routh’s (per Mr Oddie) invited all the school children over 6 to a tea and entertainment at the Friends‘ School, Sibford Ferris at 4 pm on Friday.
