Text, letter

Mr Russell new Vicar of Hook Norton called this morning about 11.30, but I was not down, being rather unwell so that I did not see him, but I was down soon after.

Miss S Dix sent a note to Rosa asking whether we knew that Mrs Turner was very ill. She had been taken suddenly during the night. Mrs Fox her sister had been summoned from Oxford by telegram and Miss Dix had been to Banbury to bring her out to Sibford. So I went to Mrs Turner’s immediately, about 7.30 pm. I found that she had had a violent attack of bleeding at the nose. I saw Mrs T who looked well and comfortable and appeared in good spirits. I spoke cheeringly to her, read and prayed with her, and left, calling on Misses E and S Dix on my way back. Louie Thame was there. It was a very dark night, the wind was rather high and cold and a little rain was falling.

I wrote to Robert W Braddell, Singapore, in reply to his letter about his young son Robin’s education.
