Sunday 16.  cloudy morning and
cool--a slight drizzle just as
church commence, which did not
however prevent the assembling of
a large congregation--Good serious
sermon by Rev. Mr. Hanson, who prea-
ched at qr past 3-an admirable
discourse to a very thin congregation
rain having commenced--Spent the
whole day quietly--not a visitor
of my [?] read little
