St Luke. Fine and bright morning. Divine Service at 9.15. Bessie Wyatt called with school cheque, which I had paid Mr Langley, who had paid it to Miss Wyatt. She had paid it to her wholesale house. They had paid it to their Bankers and so through the Clearing House I suppose – it had come back to Banbury, and been returned to Sibford. It was marked “Requires another signature”. Mr Langley had forgotten to get Mr Woolgrove’s counter signature.

Cakebread finished delivering 5 tons 4 cwt 3 qrs. “Best House Coal” from Hook Norton, sent by Lamont and Warne 16. 17. Coal Exchange London. The price 13/3 a ton at Hook Norton. I paid Cakebread 2/9 per ton for cartage and 11d. for weighing. He gave me unsolicited a shilling for the Hospitals Collection. I sent extra 4/- by Postal Order to the Horton Infirmary.

Drove to Hook Norton to meet 12.17 train from Cheltenham. A barn was blazing at Hook Norton when we left. I visited widow Reason and paid her Clothing Club money 19/4 in cash. Wrote to Master of School at Bodicote about Hopper Ventilators.
