Diary of Rev Edward Stevens

1884, November 5, Wednesday 

Mr and Mrs Mann and Mr Woolgrove came to tea to square up Church Accounts for warming and general purposes. Mrs Woolgrove was not able to come, being rather unwell.

We went up to the Schoolroom at 7 pm where we had summoned a meeting of subscribers to the Church warming apparatus, but it being a very wet night only Mr Fox was there – though Dr Routh came in when the business was over. The accounts showed that all was paid for and there was about 6/9 in hand.

1884, November 6, Thursday

Attended School Attendance Committee at Banbury. Brought out Kitty Rogers on a visit. Saw Mrs Shelswell at the Station. She had come down by same train but not in same carriage as Kitty.

Visited the Misses Dix and showed them the Balance sheet of the Church warming apparatus as well as the general expenses account.
