    Feb’y 22d Sunday.

    Arose at 6 ½. In order to celebrate Washington’s birth-day, didn’t go to prayers. Received a letter yesterday from Annie, expressing a desire to have Stevenson and Carson go on to spend the mangaration. I invited them but they are unable to go. Invited Hulsey who cannot go for want of funds to put him thro. Missionary meeting in the morning—Johnson officiating, Andy Snively in afternoon. Walked from Chapel with Miss Coyle: wishe she was going to remain here a short time longer—I could carry on a glorious flirtation with her. Wrote to my Ellen again. At 6 ½ escorted Miss C—to church—1st Presbt—Wing officiating. Had a pleasant walk, expressing my regrets &c that she must go home, drew out her feelings to some extent. In church, before last hymn: the Sexton accidentally turned off the Gas, and lights went our save three or four in Galllery. Sang Doxology and adjourned. Sate an hour at Ellen’s after church. Ret. At 11.
