Lady Howard reported that she had not succeeded in finding a permanent home for an epileptic girl in the House. The girl had been sent to two institu- tions, and in each case they declined to keep her.

Lady Howard said that in these days most of the time of Boards was occupied in considering applications for increased wages, and that Board did not seem to I bo an exception to the rule, but still if they wanted to retain their staff they had I to be prepared to pay as good wages as was being paid elsewhere.
