Sunday 30 March 1834

Three kisses better to her than to me. Very fine morning. F 49o at 8 ½ a.m. Breakfast at 8 ½. At Goodramgate church at 10 35. Miss W- & I & Thomas staid the sacrament. Almost all the congregation staid & though the church too small to hold many the service took 40 minutes. The first time I ever joined Miss W- in my prayers. I had prayed that our union might be happy. She had not thought of doing as much for me. Called for a minute or 2 in the minster yard to say we would dine there at 5 ½. Declined going to hear the fine anthem (at 4) in the minster. Walked to the village of Heworth & by the Stockton yard. Back in an hour & at Monk-Bar church at 2 ½. The clergy man preached (25 minutes) who read the prayers in the morning. I asleep and knew nothing of the sermon now or in the morning. Sat talking. Dressed. Off to Dr Belcome’s at 5 ¼. Nobody but ours. Dined about 5 ½. Coffee, tea. Home at 10 ½. Sat up talking till 12 ½ tonight. Very fine day. Mr W Crewe had thought about & reconsidered getting Hamlyn Milne out to Australia under the company of that settlement.
