Yesterday we went over highway 7 and up highway 11 to Newmarket to the old 1810 Meeting house. There were 23 people , Mrs. Starr sitting in the elders’ section in her plain dress and bonnet. It was a good meeting. I spoke for the first time it was an “awful” experience but I had to express a concern for the sharing of history with all the friends who had come throughout the years with problems and burdens to this little meeting house to find love to answer the anger and bitterness of the world.

We have been more fortunate this week than the weatherman has allowed. Cool times but lovely days with blue sky, clouds, breeze, green trees golden fields. The late season flowers are all out in golden glory before the fall colours.
