Appeal on behalf of the Church of England Pensions Board's Homes for aged and infirm clergymen and for widows of clergymen, by Mrs. Geoffrey Fisher
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
In 1948 the Church Assembly entrusted the Church of England Pensions Board with the urgent task of housing the aged and infirm clergy, their elderly widows, and dependants. Many clergymen are unable to retire because they have no means of obtaining suitable accommodation, yet they must vacate their house upon resignation. Widows must move out within two months of bereavement.
With six residential homes now established, and some flats and nursing accommodation, more than one hundred
* and fifty aged people are already enjoying a comfortable yet modest retirement, paying what they can afford from their slender means. The cost to the Board of the balance requ.red is more than £ 12,000 a year.

The thieves respons ble for the theft of the Eustace diamonds have been caught. Lizzie, 'in consequence, has been forced to make public confession of her lies about the robberies. Lord Fawn, quickly seizing this chance of escape from her claws, has made it clear that he will have nothing further to do with her; and Frank, though he has not entirely deserted her, is no more than coldly helpful. Lizzie has not entirely abandoned hope of ensnaring him, but she knows that her chances of success have now become very small indeed. Frank's neglect of Lucy Morris still continues, however; and so she has accepted Lady Fawn's invitation to return to Fawn Court when she leaves her present post as companion to Lady Ambleside.
