Got up about 9.30. At chapel and School as usual. Our turn for children’s service and had rather a rough time. Mr Hardy preaching in the morning and Mr Lawson at night1. I managed pretty well in Sunday School and had a big class. Mr Blaikie in trying the boys for the choir and we were in late. Had shorter walks than usual.
Messrs Hardy and Lawson: not identified, probably local (ie un-ordained amateur) preachers. ↩
