A little rain this morning and a good deal in the afternoon. Mr Woolgrove came into the vestry after morning service. He agreed with me that the School might have the usual five weeks’ Harvest Holiday this year as requested by Mr Langley. Yesterday I received a note from Mr Riddle asking me to preach Harvest sermon for him on the 7th inst. I replied, by Carrier that I was unable to promise to do so, as my own Thanksgiving service was fixed for that day, but that I or Harry or both of us would be free and glad to help him on the 30th.
