Sunday, 19th May, 1867

A lovely day, and I would like above all things to attend Church every Sunday if I possibly could, but having no conveyance at present must content myself the best I can at home. Mary’s quite complaining all day. Bill took a long nap about dinner time. John boiled a joint in the kitchen, and I cooked the rest of the dinner in the stove and then had to dine alone, i.e., no one but Mollie and myself. All had taken a snack and are napping. Mr. and Mrs. Garrett and Dr. Ju spent the evening. Mr. Cooke and Pigeo arrived from Smyrna to supper, expected them yesterday evening.
