St Bartholomew’s Day. Divine Service at 9.15. Frank accompanied Mrs Page and Mrs Kerr in Ainge’s wagonette (West driving) to Broughton. They went over the castle and Frank took some photographs.

I visited school and spoke to Mr Langley about Sunday School treat and breaking up. We think next Friday will be most suitable for both.

I met George Aris, junior who married our old servant Jane Messenger. He was very well dressed, very well mannered and looked well. He is manager (for brewers) of a beer shop at Haggerston, for which he gets £3 a week etc.

Visited Widow Lamb who showed me a letter recently received from her son Francis who says trade of all kinds is bad in Toronto.
