Public or charity schools: We have no Such Thing as a Charity School, but by ye Charity of Coulson Fellowes Esqr poor Peoples Children are Taught to Write & Read as I’m informd at Chawleigh at his Expence.
Residence upon cure: I preach on Every Sunday at Eggesford; but my House at Present is in Such a Miserable Condition yt no one can Live in it without imminent danger. I am in these parts Every Saturday Sunday & Monday, & on Tuesday return to my Family which is at present in Exeter.
Number of communicants: I never as yet administerd ye Holy Sacrament at Eggesford, but upon ye best Enquiry, I could make, find there are but few, as ye Parish is Small, & does not abound with Inhabitants.
Catechising of children: I have admonish’d ye Parents publickly in ye Church to Send their Children & Servants to be instructed in ye Catechise, and very Soon Shall See, what will be ye effects of my admonition.
