Current Page Transcription [edit] [history]

Tuesday 7th April. Received to-day two letters one from Alfred. He is still in Wolverton. I wish he would do something for himself. He has not energy or ambition enough to do anything for himself, or anybody else I fear. Also a letter from Emma G. A Mr Clark is there from Rochester giving Concerts I would like very much to attend some of them, but Alas! I am in Walsingham. She says they have so little room and so much company her Mother wishes us to make arrangements to bring Jassy home I am sorry I am so anxious he should continue at School, besides I am afraid I cannot attend properly to him & Newton both. I can't bear the idea of his coming in contact with all these profane rough men I cannot keep him altogether from them. but "All things work together for Good." So I will {illegible} do the best I can. Please God direct us.

Sunday night 12th Another Sabbath with its record of good and evil has closed, passed never to return. Father came
