A lovely day. I accompanied the children to Jerusalem. Hardie drove the carriage and Bill rode Fannie. Zac remained to keep house. We returned by Ju’s to dinner and got home to supper. We were all pleased with the sermon, subject “The Kingdom of God.” We differ with him as regards the setting up of the Kingdom, but he approaches very nearly to what we believe to be the plain facts in this case. Dr. Edwards proposed to him to speak on the same subject at Zion next Sunday. They had some conversation. – – They all dined at the Tavern. Pigeo and Hardie walked over in the afternoon to call on Miss Hopson.1Rev. Hopson seem to be traveling with his daughter. We will learn later she is Sadie, 16. They left in company with the Henley’s for King and Queen while they were there. – – Mr. Henley gave Bill $2 for damage done by his hogs.
