At chapel and School as usual. Mr Chadwick preaching. Rather stormy and we didn’t get our walks. Had to refuse a lot of business at the side door1.
The shop would have been closed on Sunday as was then required by law. Perhaps, under the shop’s former ownership, some customers had been in the habit of making clandestine purchases at the side door on a Sunday? This is clearly a practice which ALL and his family, devout observers of the Christian sabbath, would never have allowed to continue. ↩
