The Captaine is well acquainted with the {Staren?} boys who are second cousins of my {?}. He gives a favourable account of their {positions?}. Went down to Fenwick to attend Revival service this evening. Had the pleasure of taking {?} with me. The meeting was very good.


Stayed all night at Mr. Hortons again last night, and to day went in their company to visit the {?}. Had a pleasant time with them and a good sing, which I always enjoy. These people are quite cultivated musicians. Went to Bill Holcombs this evening for an hour or so. From there went to Mrs Cookes and had tea. Stayed for a while & enjoyed my visit very much. Went to stay all night at Chandler Holcombs this evening.{Found them in bed.}
