1877, September 15th, Saturday

Took luncheon at Mr Montagu’s with Mr and Mrs Bouchier.

Elizabeth Gibbs died this morning at half past six.

Visited Mrs Bond and her daughter. The latter is better than she was yesterday.

1877, September 16th, Sunday

Visited Gibbs this morning and again this evening. His daughter Lucy Padbury told me her mother was to be buried in the Friends’ ground on Friday next.

Mr and Mrs Bouchier came over from Tadmarton to the service this afternoon. Mr B did not take any part in the service though I asked him to do so. There was an excellent congregation. They took tea at Miss Dix’s and Bell and myself were there too.

Visited Mrs Mawle, Mr Woolgrove and Joshua Lines. Also John Harris. Mrs Harris was very much hurt because Mr Bouchier did not call to see her. He certainly did wonders in seeing his old parishioners as it was.

Afternoon service (instead of evening) was resumed today.
