Octavius Hadfield

[extract from the diary of Octavius Hadfield]

Dec. 15th . . . Lord's Day. The service was conducted in the morning by Cranmer, the Christian native who accompanied me. Afterwards we had school. In the evening I for the first time read the native service. Simon, a Christian native gave an address from Col. 3, 1-3 in a very able manner. Before service for several reasons I felt rather in low spirits. A Wesleyan lad Paul has set up an opposition service in the Pa, etc., etc., but during the service and even before when I saw the natives crowding to the chapel till many were obliged to stand and many to remain outside, I looked up with thankfulness to the Lord and gave thanks. . . .
