This evening Julia and I went into Newport to hear Mr. Henry Vincent deliver an oration at the Queens Rooms on the “Social foibles of English Life”. It was very interesting amusing and instructive, the room was very full. Mr. Bing sat in the chair. We enjoyed it very much indeed and arrived home about 1/4 past 11 o’clock – Mr. Christian at the Terrace departed this life one day last week.
