Busy all day. Went to the organ at night and didn’t manage very well. Met John Wilkinson and Chapman and talked to them a bit.
The Jews’ chimney on fire and Joe was in putting it out1. We didn’t go to bed until after midnight.
Joe commenced nice work at Dr Todds’.
“Chimney on fire”: most people seem to have been accustomed to performing minor tasks which Jewish neighbours could not do on their Sabbath, which began at sunset on the Friday; a chimney on fire seems rather more than ordinary. ↩
