a few days ago I made mention of 81 year old Billy Thompson being

old Bill, instead I mention a word and the whole world has gone chuntering
mad ! Billy Thompson must be chuntering in his grave !

Mr Williams pig jobber be allowed the swill .... at 2/6 a quarter.
Ashbourne paupers to collect coffins from contractor instead of having them
Thomas Wood of Kniveton absconded from the Workhouse .......with the
Workhouse clothes. Lots of chuntering there !
Thomas Wood apprehended, James Corbishley paid 2-4-6d, no chuntering from
Thomas Wood denies he consented to have 2/- deducted from his wages to pay
for the expenses of prosecuting him for taking Workhouse clothing. More
chuntering from Tom.
