Mr George Coopers birthday, I went to church Mr Scot has preached at Wootton 2 years today. In 1856 the sacrament was administrated 6 times. There was 190 communicants this year, it was administrated 8 times and 226 communicants . Mr Scots text was from the 16th verse of the second chapter of Corinthians “Who is sufficient for these things”.

In the afternoon drank tea at Balams Farm, after tea Mrs Alford, Miss Alford, Nora and I went for a long walk, we called on Mrs H. Williams. I arrived home about quarter to 9 o’clock. Julia had gone part of the way home with Cousin William.
