Residence upon cure:
I do not reside personally upon this Cure, but on the Vicarage of Sth Petherwin in Cornwall.
Curate: I have a Licensed Curate Francis Waltars. His allowance is £30 yearly & ye Surplice fees. He doth not live in ye Parsonage house, it not being as yet sufficiently repair’d. I found ye whole parsonage so much in Ruins, & ye Income of it is so small, after necessary outgoings are paid, that altho I have expended every peny I have receiv’d, I have not been able to finish ye necessary reparations.
Catechising of children: The Children are Catechized in the Church on Sunday afternoons in ye Summer. The Parishioners teach their Children & servants ye Catechism at home, which they rehearse in ye Church.
