[Minnie Frisby remembers being about sixteen years old. In the previous two or three years, she took piano and dance lessons whilst working at the Cattle Market Tavern run by her sister Rose. She recalls this period of her life again with some additional details, pp. II, 20-24]


I was getting a bit older now and had finished learning dressmaking and was working on my own; as time went on I began to get a little tired of the life of gaity, as we were having late evenings and supper parties,  and singing, especially about Xmas timeand I began to feel I wanted to go back to my old life ; so, I decided to go home […] [O]f course I attended Chapel again and being able to play was asked to play the Harmonion [sic]for the services, which I did, and threw myself wholeheartedly into the work of Sunday School and practices of Harvest Thanksgiving, and Anniversaries, and really became very good, and decided to leave the gay life behind. 


I was Baptised and received into membership (at New Road) when I was 21. Then I broke with my old love and decided that Johnny [Frisby]would be a better match, as his people were very religious and highly respected, and he was an only son, the prospects looked good. So […] he would come up to Worms Ash about 3 times a week, also go to [Dodford Baptist] Chapel with me and help with the services, as then he used to play the violin very well, and had been playing with others at [Ebenezer Methodist Chapel Sidemoor]; he was also secretary of the band. Well, we were courting about 12 months and then engaged and the next year married; was married in 1900.
