We got there at the first Lesson and left after the hymn before the Sermon.

P[riests]. – 2. Doubtless, they were curates and, I thought, very ordinary.  The intoning was carried to excess and nearly spoilt their voices.

O[rgan]. – Old.  It was in the old Parish Church.

H[ymns]. – "Praise, my soul, the King of Heaven …"  "We sing the praise of Him Who died …" from Hymns A. & M.

[The congregation numbered] 350 – […] There were very many decent poor and some lads behind mos [sic] well behaved.  The side aisles were nearly empty.

C[hoir]. – Twelve boys and eight men, surpliced, voluntary with nice voices though perhaps a bit too florid for a mission church.

S[ermon]. – We didn't stop.

[…]

M[iscellaneous]. – It is respectable Anglican, the High Church of my youth which I cannot now find.  My wife now says I may stay later and hear the sermon.  She says she would just as soon I did it.
