19Sep1870, Confirmation in Cartmel Church

HOLKER, September 19th, 1870.
—There was a Confirmation of about 200 in Cartmel Church : the new Bishop (Harvey Goodwin) made good charges, earnest, simple, and to the point ; it was altogether a very solemn and touching sight. Reminded me of my own never-to-be-forgotten Confirmation, sadly and vividly. That recollection must always be a true strengthener of my faith, but I cannot feel as if I had the blessed fervour of that "time of refreshing." The school played in the park in the afternoon.
