Reading Experience:

'I rather felt this morning it would have been right for me to read the Bible again, and stop George Dilwyn and Joseph reading something else. Now stopping G.D. was a difficult thing; for a person like me to remind him! however, I did not fully do as I thought right, for I did not openly tell G.D. we were going to read, but spoke to my husband, so as for him to hear; then he read, I knowing I had not done my best'
