G Selwyn Edwards, District Inspector of Drawing, visited School this morning.

Mrs Neil, of Burdrop, a woman who has been living with Joseph Messenger as his wife, and has 3 children by him and is living at John Lines’s, sent to say she would like to see me. So I went this afternoon. She was in bed. I had to go to her room by a ladder. She showed me bruises, and a wound on her head which she said he made last night. I gave her 2/- to get food for her children, but recommended her to go into the workhouse with her children where they would be properly fed and taken care of. I spoke to her very plainly of the misery she had brought upon herself.

I visited Miss Sabin.
