15May1864, Peace and Brightness

HAGLEY, Whitsunday, May 15th, 1864.
—A day of great peace and brightness. Oh, such a lovely, radiant morning ! a thing in itself to return thanks for, so much it added of happiness. We received the Holy Communion together in my own dear church. Afterwards sat on octagon bench ; quite silent, but how happy ! Then came the Rectors to see him ; and after luncheon we sat with her on the lawn. I had my class in the morning : 0 dear ! had to tell them it was the last time ; but I made short work of it, for fear of crying.
