Pleasant and cool today. I am disappointed in not being able to go to Church. Pigeo and Nan are complaining too much to go. Zac went to Acquinton and returned to dinner. Liv dined at Ju’s and returned to supper. – – Had a terrible rain this evening. I spent the day reading the Bible pretty much. I get very sad sometimes when I allow myself to think and contrast the present with the past. Think a great deal of Bake and Hardie, and often wish them with me to comfort the many cheerless hours I spend.
