Fine and bright but intensely cold. Visited Mary Thame at the Doctor’s, but did not go up stairs as she was much better, but has had an attack of pleurisy during the week. I saw Miss S Dix and Miss Hayward. Miss Grace was out with the doctor. Visited Job Harris, Thomas Keen and Richard Haynes whose daughter Myra is servant at the Doctor’s, but is at home ill. I hear that Joshua Lines has been bad with lumbago but gets about. I had not time to call to see him. Called on Charles Barnes to speak about the warming the church. He was going to light the underground stove this evening as he did last Saturday. I also visited the Goughs.

Our WC apparatus and our pump are rendered useless by the continued frost.
