Appeal on behalf of Bishop Creighton House and Time and Talents Association, by the Rev. R. M. Campbell
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to the Rev. R. M. Campbell, [address removed]
Both these Associations are voluntary organisations with Christian foundations which for more than half a century have been engaged in social work in Fulham and Bermondsey, organising clubs for all ages, visiting the lonely, and meeting local needs as they arise. Out of this experience they are now expanding their work to meet the problem of resettlement of groups in new estates and the needs of people from overseas.
by William Makepeace Thackeray
A serial in twelve episodes freely adapted by Audrey Lucas
Produced by Martyn C. Webster
Becky is presented at Court by Lady Jane, Sir Pitt having given her a diamond clasp-unknown to his wife. Her other magnificent jewels-given to her by Lord Steyne-she assures Rawdon, were hired.
Steyne finds young Rawdon a place at Whitefriars School where Rawdon takes him. Steyne visits Briggs and discovers not only that the sum Becky had borrowed from her was only half what Steyne had given Becky, but that Briggs has not been repaid a penny. Steyne arranges for Briggs to become housekeeper at one of his country homes.
Sir Pitt and Lady Jane warn Rawdon that Becky cannot be without a suitable companion, so Rawdon agrees to accompany her to any social gathering. Walking back from Gaunt House one night, Rawdon is arrested by a sheriff's officer.
Dobbin and Jos Sedley return from abroad and Jos promises to look after Amelia and her old father.
