The teacher reported that David
Bashford left School on the 10th Current and went to
learn weaving with William Heron in Kirklands for three
and a half years, the boy receiving half of his own
earnings. William Heron is a quiet man. The Teacher has
arranged that the boy is to continue to attend the
Sabbath School kept in the Ragged School. The Teacher is
requested to keep his eye over this boy and also to
endeavour to secure his regular attendance at church.
The teacher reported that several
of the children are now in need of clothing,
particularly trousers. The Meeting think it would be
proper to give notice in the several churches that
donations of clothes will be gratefully received, both
to meet the present demand and the approaching winter.
