June SUNDAY 19 1887

Owing to a shower of rain this morning we did not get out to church, Went this evening however and took Lewis with me. Our minister gave us an interesting and proffitable discourse on the fourth commandment respecting the Sabbath day. Am thankful that this subject is revieving the attention of the Christian public, more than ever of late. The agitation for more stringent Sabbath laws being apparantly quite general. The Lord has been very gracious to me this day also.
