Got up about 3 pm. My cold is gradually getting better but was worse last night and this morning. Thaw, sunshine and rain. Frank drove Rosa to Bloxham to lunch with Mrs Kershaw. Jesse Bishop called this evening about his old grievance and was so abusive that I ordered him out of the house. D Hones’ wife sent a note asking for children’s school attendance premiums. I sent her 5/6 for the three.
