[unknown] : [unknown, probably religious, Bible?]

'At ten o'clock we all met in the study and my father read to us. - I fear my mind is not sufficiently obedient to its God. After dinner I taught Danny to read and did a little logic. Since that I have been reading aloud a long homily and there I committed a fault. John asked me to let him read and I did not, which takes off the satisfaction of reading for I did not do as I would be done by.'
