Mrs Hudgel, a widow in Welltrees Street, who has one son John, aged 16 - a daughter, Rachael aged 7, and wishes to have Rachael received in to the School, but is unable to pay anything, owing to her son John, being disabled by a disease in legs from working at anything. She is not upon the Parochial Board. Mrs Hudgel, being called in and examined, states she will give her child her food and hopes the Committee will give the education gratuitously. The Meeting agree to her proposal.
