Missionary Anniversary. At chapel and School as usual. Mr Baker preached in the morning. A meeting in the church in the afternoon. Mr Shepherd and a Mr Clark spoke. Pretty good meeting. Collections slightly up but no chairman’s donation. Didn’t have usual walks. Night very fine. I stayed to prayer meeting †afterwards to† get collections and square things up. Played the piano. Father improving. I called at Fred Waggott’s1 at dinner time to see about the School. James told Charlie the sketch for the social is off.
Fred Waggott: the family had a long-established butchery business, and were members of the Methodist chapel. ↩
