Wrote to Miss Anderdon. Received nice letter from Frank. He says Miss A will allow £130 plus £30 for tutor. A delightfully calm and sunny day, but still intensely cold. Visited school, Mr and Mrs Ainge, Mrs Turner, Jane Messenger, G Spicer, Edward Fox Ezra Green. Distributed some coal tickets to day and yesterday. Widow Mary Sabin died during the night aged about 86.

Mrs Rugg wrote that Annie Martin died on 7th. inst and was to be buried near Birmingham yesterday.

A death announcement cut from the Banbury Advertiser of 21 February 1895 is pasted into the diary: “Sabin—February 13, at Sibford Gower, Mary Sabin, aged 88 years.”
