Sabbath, Sept. 14, 1862

The Sabbath School library which William bought and gave the school was first distributed to the school today.  The books are beautiful and were the cause of many smiles on children's faces.  Mr. Curtis brought with him a Mr. Monelle who addressed the school and afterwards preached.  Our congregation numbered more than 80 today, which for this place is a large number.  I was sorry to notice that today neither of the men who occupied the pulpit prayed either for the government, the country, or the patriot army who daily suffer for our good.  Now is the time to say mightily unto God -- in this hour of darkness, when men's hearts fail them with fear, lest all be lost.
