Text, letter

Joseph Green called this morning for 17/6 due from Town Estate for mason’s work at Heath Farm. I wrote to R. Bentley & Sons, publishers, about my “Stories and Sketches from a Vicar’s Diary”.

Drove Bell to Bloxham and called on Mrs Kershaw who removed thither whilst we were in London. Dr Routh was there being in attendance on her and on her groom-gardener Truss.

Married at 2pm Edward Andrew Scruby, age 19, and Caroline Wilkes, of Wigginton, lately servant at Dr Routh’s. She has been living at Edward Scruby’s since she left her situation in disgrace. She calls herself 23, but she looks more. He is 19.
