Thomas Rimell called about allotment. I let him one lately held by Richard Scruby and he paid rent in advance 12/6. I asked him why he and his wife were not at church yesterday. He said she was very unwell.

Miss Sarah Dix brought 2/- from an anonymous donor to the hospital fund.

Miss Harbage came on visit.

Poulton called. I gave him instructions to batten the damp side of Mr Elley’s parlour.

James Barnes called; seems very feeble.
