Christmas Day. A most beautiful sunshining yet frosty morning. 43 communicants, being the largest number entered in present Vestry Book (for Xmas Day) which begins 1871. The offertory amounted to $1.4.1 – the largest sum with one exception (1877 £1.6.1) during that period.

We had quiet family dinner all my children, Bell and self at 5 o’clock.
