Mr. McLean preached today, altho’ still an invalid, a very good sermon. The Free Church have a good frame meeting house, with a pleasant yard around it, the congregation appears to be an intelligent one. They have a sabbath school in which Kate teaches an interesting class of young ladies. I noticed a number of contrabands receiving instruction. One named Oscar that Mrs. Dr. Davidson was teaching near where I sat, seemed to be making good progress.
Dr. Davidson in again to see Mr. Thomas McLean who fancied himself worse, but the Dr. pronounced him doing well. Little Jennie Bell is really a sick child and takes most of Marias time & care.
