Date13 January 1894
DescriptionRix sends thanks for the trouble Wheeler has taken in sending them a candidate for the position of charwoman, but reports that he and Mrs Kennedy thought she did not seem strong enough for the work, which has lately increased. As a consequence, they would prefer a young strong woman. They have heard of another woman who they will trial, before troubling Wheeler for another candidate.
