31Aug1854, The school feast

HAGLEY, August 31st, 1854.
—The school feast came off. Dove's leg better. The prizes were given between 1 and 2 : both the little Daphnes, 3 Wyatts and 3 Tandys got prizes. They dined very soon after, at the S.E. side of the house ; and eat no less than six rice, and six plum puddings, two legs of mutton, besides lots of beef, bread, and beer.
