“Miss Bowman’s haunted house was at Braybrooke, near Market Harborough, north heights. It was belonging to the Board School, & every schoolmistress lived in it rent free. The first noises were like slates & books thrown against wall & falling in pieces on table, then people were heard walking about especially in kitchen – in broad daylight, in the room where she sat. Others heard it with her.”
I went to the S. F. committee in the evening, and they went over all the branch resolutions in the Convention agenda & instructed us to vote for or against each, or as we liked. There was only one that we were told to vote against; adherence to the policy as expounded by A. G. Séan Matthews was very determined against that, thinking it repudiated the use of arms altogether”.
