Dec. [December] 25 – The town friends provided us with
a Christmas dinner – Roast beef, plum pudding and tarts.
We have few friends in town, but what we have are very
mindful of us. I believe we are indebted for today’s
dinner to Miss Briever, Mrs. Crossin and Mr. Alex. Mc-
Arthur. Long may they live. Music and dancing tonight.
We hear two commissioners from Canada have arrived.
