20Apr1867, Easter at Hagley

HAGLEY, April 20th, 1867, Easter Eve.
—This peaceful day is always a little spoilt here by the necessity of working pretty hard at decorations. I should like to spend it almost alone, in some deep country stillness, and make myself feel as if cares and pleasures alike were suspended, and the "Land very, far off" were close at hand. Oh, if one could make these thoughts of Christ become real communion with Him !
