Text, letter

Suffering from pain in chest for past day or two from indigestion. Visited School and taught a little. Took Clothing Club and Penny Bank money. Very cold wind. The women had their Harvest tea in school room, and also a dance afterwards. The band played one or two tunes outside the school room and then, it was said, marched to Sibford Ferris. I found them at the outside of the “Bishop Blaize” at Burdrop. I did not say anything to them, but I thought that while the men played fairly well the beer played very ill. All was quiet and orderly enough when I went into the school room. I had told the women it must be closed at 11. I visited Miss Dix and then walked round Sibford Ferris and the Elm.
