Scope and Contents

"Looks after the [shop], just queer, not right. Speech funny. Mother 70-80; brother cattle dealer helps her with the money. Lives at home; sister in London hospital, now dead, very capable. They have a smallholding. Dr. says she is just peculiar, very dull. Brother OK. He does not know how you would classify her. Minister thinks it is only shyness - has a lisp and is afraid of people laughing at her, OK otherwise. No interest in making money - gave up all goods that needed coupons. Perhaps a bit queer. Rest are OK - a good home."
