Frost which began in the middle of the week continues.

Going to Sunday School this morning I saw Edward Spicer who should have been in his class sliding in the middle of the road. He went on although he saw me. I spoke to him for some time and was much grieved at his apparent callousness – in fact he seemed quite idiotic in his manner. However, he did not slide again and I was glad to see him in Church afterwards.

Visited Sunday School this morning and took a class. Walked and talked with Isaac Padbury this afternoon.

Walked to Winderton Church this evening with Mr. Kirkland but the service commenced before we could get in, so we returned. The Church was crowded half an hour before service commenced.

Mrs Mawle is ill with bronchitis.
