[The author repeats this memory, p. II.20]


The Xmas time, there would be a huge Xmas tree in Chapel, with presents on for all and a tea party; I well remember once we had a Magic Lantern: how I can see it now, the white sheet and then the hymns:-

“Let us gather up the sunbeams

Lying all around our path”.

 and afterwards, 

We are but little children weak,

Not born in any high estate” 

also, “Tell me the old, old, story”, they—I mean the words of the hymns were all flashed on the white sheet, and we all stood up and sang them. (What a memory). 


Then we would sometimes have a service of song, which was usually some pathetic story read by some prominent person, and we children would sing the solo’s and hymns in between. I remember one such called “Driven from Home”, and a Mr Carter from Catshill took the reading. 


The lady who played the Harmonion [sic]at the time was Annie Phillips (Miss) and she was a sister to Mrs Dolphin Senr. ; how she used to sing and teach us too.
