Appeal on behalf of The Clergy Orphan Corporation by Lady Cynthia Colville D.C.V.O., D.B.E ,
Contributions (preferably by crossed postal order or cheque) will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to Lady Cynthia Colville, [address removed]
The Clergy Orphan Corporation was founded more than two hundred years ago to help the fatherless children of clergy of the Church of England and the Church of Wales. The cost of this work is met to a limited degree from endowments, but the Corporation must rely mainly on subscriptions and donations for its existence. Last year £ 33,073 was spent in relieving distress.

by ANTHONY TROLLOPE adapted for radio in thirteen episodes by H. Oldfied Box
Episode 4
Greshamsbury, once so prosperous an estate, is now heavily in debt. Frank Gresham , the young heir, has alarmed his mother, Lady Arabella, by the signs of affection he has shown for Mary Thorne, the doctor's niece. Lady Arabella has resolved that Mary's visits to the Manor House must cease. Frank must marry money. Yet it so happens that the great fortune of that self-made man, Sir Roger Scatcherd, may one day pass to Mary. But this is something that Doctor Thorne alone knows. Even Sir Roger himself does not know it; for he has made his will in complete ignorance of Mary Thorne 's identity.
