Sharp frost with light snow falling until noon. Attended service at Treyford. The same person officiated the attendance rather smaller. The sermon from the text, “Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.” Simple and practical, with more of good sense than is common in the established church. I then bid Goodbye to this very secluded, attractive spot. Walk in the afternoon by Gunnersbury and Ealing Church. Quiet evening. This day, for the first time at Ealing I think, we have been entirely alone. Brooks here from school.
