January 24, 1866
Had a Committee Meeting of the Church D. Society in the infants' schoolroom, to appropriate the money and then went and put in an advertisement of our Bazaar and Tea to be held, D.V., July next. After tea this evening, went to the Church D. Society's anniversary meeting. It was a large meeting, the Governor was in the chair and Mr. D. was present. The Governor gave us a nice speech; Mr. Pointher read the report, which was very interesting, I thought; then the speakers began, one after another. I moved the 3rd resolution and Mr. Hinsley seconded it. The meeting went off very well ‑ collections: about 5 pounds and was dismissed by the Benediction from the Archdeacon, a little after ten o'clock.
