Text, letter

Took Bell to the Industrial Exhibition for India and the Colonies, called the “Colinderies” at South Kensington adjoining the Albert Hall.

Here we met Rev F. A. Wilson of Oxford and Mrs Wilson with whom we took refreshment in the shape of “Hock Cobbler”. As the day was intensely hot and we were very thirsty, the iced draught taken up through two straws was novel and refreshing. The Music and illuminations in the evening were particularly fine.
