28 July 1905 — Peterborough Minster Precincts, Peterborough, Cambridgeshire
Friday. 28th [July 1905]. In the afternoon Kate & I took a hansom & drove to Milton to call on Mrs Fitzwilliam but she was not at home so we returned to the Precincts & called on Mrs Barlow wife of the Dean—a very pleasant woman– She had a large party of Canadian ladies who had come to see the Cathedral & to whom she gave tea– We had tea afterwards & then she took us round their garden & from there we went to service at the Cathedral– Afterwards the Bishop & Lady Mary Glyn came to call on us & I took the Bishop across the road to Miss Ingram’s (sister of the late Dean) to consult about the work she is doing for the Cathedral—mounting some old embroideries I had given her for that use. I gave some good green velvet wh Henry had bought for me to make a gown of—almost his last present—& I felt I could never wear it so I gave it for the use of the Church. Miss Ingram has fairy fingers & enormous patience & this work for the Church fills a want in her life & makes her happy.
