The 6d had to cover sausage meat and bread; and only two tins of condensed milk per week were. allowed for the baby. Wil liam "evidently desired his wife and lmhild to live as "near liature" as pos sible, as he absolutely refused to con tribute anything for clothing. How ever; he is.going to do better from this on, as he will contribute 15s a week to his wife's maintenance, and- find a surety in £25 for.the fulfilment of the order.
