Divine Service at Church at 9.15 am.

Visited and taught in School.

Visited Widow William Keene, not at home.

Choir practice with Mr Wells this evening.

Visited Edward Scruby who is very bad with inflammation of heart and lungs. He was asleep and I would not let his wife awaken him, promising to call again in the morning. I had thought he was a Quaker as I don’t remember ever to have seen him at Church and he works for Mr R Routh. He seemed so respectable a man that I mentally accounted for his not coming to Church and not touching his hat to me by supposing him to be a quaker and I am under the impression that some one told me he was one. His wife now tells me he has been baptized and confirmed and that “when he goes anywhere” which is barely once a year he goes to church.

Visited Dr Routh.
