Sunday 16th August 1846

“Rose quarter past six. Went and bathed in Serpentine. Breakfasted and to St Margaret’s Church.  Stopped but a short time, took down Mr Emery Hill’s inscription, and then went to Christ Church, Westminster, and took down a few inscriptions in burial ground, the most remarkable of which is ‘Margaret Patten 136 years of age’, and also inscriptions on almshouses in York Street. Home to dinner and afterwards to St Margaret’s Church again, and took down some more inscriptions in scrapbook before and after service, which I stopped, making third visit to this church successively. After tea — had Ann up but to very little purpose. I saw more of her cabinet than I ever did. — At home reading remainder of the day.”
