Sunday, 7th January, 1866

A bright morning, but a cold and disagreeable day. – – All except Bill attended Zion. Hardie rode Fannie, and Zac went in the carriage with Nan, Rose and myself. – – Zac rode Fannie from Church and Hardie returned in the carriage with us. Corbin drove the mules. – – Cousin Lem was very interesting today. Subject, “The Kingdom of God”. This is the first Sunday I have attended Church for several weeks, owing to the weather and my delicate state of health. – – I commenced having my side rubbed with Croton oil tonight and taking Taraxacum by Ju’s directions. Nan rubbed my side. – – Dellah cooks this week.
