13Oct1863, Step-carpetums and ball-chairums

HAGLEY, Tuesday, October 13th, 1863.
—A good deal of rain : still mild. Big club day. It's pleasant to see these girls come back as cheerfully and heartily to their work after such a holyday. The sort of thing that used to try me beyond anything ! Cong. [FN: I.e., congregation at church, exclusive of Hall and Rectory.] 2. Girls, Miss M., and I took pudding to Mrs. Burford, and visited the Stringers' new house. Paperums, perron-awning-ums, step-carpetums, ball-chairums, stableums.
