08Oct1871, Went to Early Communion

HAGLEY, October 8th, 1871. 18th Sunday after Trinity.
—I went to the Early Communion, which I do not often do ; it is strange, but personally I do greatly prefer the noon-day celebration. My health is so good and I am so entirely unaffected one way or the other by food and hours of meals that it is no help to me, spiritually, to communicate fasting ; and the long morning service is what I seem to want to put my mind and soul in tune. And here there are so sadly few at the early Celebration that it was all over in too short a time.
