Windy but clear. Attended Divine service at the Chapel. Mr Taylor preached from Hebrews. 13.14. “For here have we no continuing city, but seek that which is to come.” Upon the future life. As my daughter was with me alone I did not remain to the communion. After service I went down and paid a visit to Mr and Mrs Bartlett and Mr Harrod. From thence I walked to Kensington gardens thence across to Bayswater home. It was a long walk and I felt quite fatigued. My spirits however were better, and I felt a sort of encouragement about matters from home, although we did not receive the usual telegraphic intelligence. Quiet evening. Read a little of Mr Motley’s book.
