Went to Ryde. Rosa confirmed by Dr Samuel Wilberforce Bishop of Winchester in Ryde Parish Church. I arrived before close of address. Saw the Rector Rev Alexander Poole, who was Precentor of Bristol Cathedral when I was there. He was formerly curate of St Mark’s, Kemp Town, Brighton. I had a few moments conversation with him in the churchyard. Visited the Misses Moore, Missenden House, where Rosa is. Took a private lodging.
