Text, letter

Received a letter from Mrs Kerr asking for information about Mr Heuville, Rector of Chipping Warden. I replied very carefully recommending that before responding to his appeal for pecuniary assistance he should be asked for a reference to his Rural Dean. I told Mrs Kerr that I did not feel justified in repeating what I had heard in his disfavour. For that, personally, I knew nothing about him.

A dull day with light rain all afternoon. Rosa wanted to see the dentist, so I drove her and Bell to Banbury. I changed some cheques at London & County Bank and paid various accounts. It was the first time of my going to Banbury since last Christmas.
