Peter Hawker in Boulogne-sur-Mer, France - 25 July, 1841, in the morning

from Journal entry, 25 July 1841, page 209:

Sunday. Went to the English church at eleven. Service performed by two fairly good parsons, and music nicely got up by the amateur English of the place, who are at the chief expense of this exclusive place of worship; and to which therefore there is a charge of 1 franc entrance to non-subscribers, and a very just one it is.
