Attended parson Wibird the whole day. He recommended very highly humility, or spiritual
poverty; his sermons were I thought, better than usual. Miss Sarah Taylor, a young
lady between 60 and 70 years old dined here this day. I have seen, when I was a child
in books of fairy tales, figures very much like this lady, astride upon a broomstick
riding Jehu-like through the air. This is a sufficient description of her person,
and as to her mind, it will be enough to say that she has been a genuine old maid,
these forty years.
