April 3rd 1885 Good Friday; Tom, Baby and I went to tea at Fathers. Oh with what pleasure I think of the pleasure of having him to go to see; and I did so enjoy even that afternoon with him. Then Mrs. Kelk and Willie went to hear the Messiah at a Hall close by and were much charmed with it. Easter Monday; Dear Granma kept baby and Tom and I went to Albert Hall. We felt it a great treat and our Easter holiday afforded us all a nice pleasant rest and change.

April 5. Mr Chown preached at the Metropolitan Tabernacle on the three favoured disciples. He spoke of the three occasions when they were admitted alone with Jesus and of their future career.
