Current Page Transcription [edit] [history]

February SUNDAY 5 1893

I went to the Quarterly meeting in Delhi this morning, but had to go alone. Rather enjoyed the service although amongst strangers. The congregation was rather large for such a stormy icy time. Rev Bro. Clarke officiated. Went with my brother-in-law Will Ferguson and family to the Presbyterian Church this evening. The pastor Rev Mr Barclay preached to a rather small congregation. Was favourably impressed with the services and somewhat encouraged thereby.

February MONDAY 6 1893

Rain has been falling incessantly to day. So much so that we found it impossible or unwise to drive over to Wyecombe as we intended this forenoon. Have been visiting with Maggies brothers and their families until evening when the rain ceased, and we drove over to Mr. Fergusons at Wyecombe. Found them looking for us, and glad to see us, and have spent the evening pleasantly as well as the day.
