My wife, self and maid at church in the forenoon; the text in Luke 16:25: “And Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.” We dined on a piece of pork and peas. After dinner we had a very heavy shower of rain. My wife, self and maid at church in the afternoon; the text in Luke l4:l4: “For thou shalt be recompensed at the resurrection of the just.”
