I began an early Celebration at Upton at 9 am on Advent Sunday.  The Celebration is at 11 am on the first Sunday in the month at Upton and at 11am on the third Sunday at Thorpe, on which Sunday (ie.the 3rd) there is no Celebration at Upton but Morning Prayer at 9am.  Thus there are 3 Celebrations monthly at Upton, and 1 at Thorpe.  On all Great Festivals (Easter, Whitsunday, Trinity, Ascension, Christmas Days) Celebration at both Churches.

The Celebration always takes place at Upton at 9am but if there are no Communicants but my wife and myself  I do not mention our names.

Monday, January 1

I saw the Coroner (Mr. A.D. Bartlett)  at Abingdon relative to the dispute between him and Mr. Lightfoot as to an inquest on Mary Butler, who died on Dec.24.  He said he had explained to Mr. L. that he saw no necessity for an Inquest.

Letter from Syon Gardens about Mulberry Trees and photocopy of Newspaper Cutting from The Times of 1 November 1963

Syon Gardens
Brentford
Novr 21st 1877

Dear Sir,

I have succeeded in striking 6 Mulberry trees 3 of which I have pleasure in sending to you.  The cuttings were of course taken from the celebrated old tree growing at Syon.  They might be planted out at any time as they are in pots – but I think it would be better to defer the planting until just before they begin to bud in the spring or they could though be shifted into a larger pot and grown on for another season.  They will be forwarded today per G.W. Railway.

yours obediently

John Woodbridge

This Mulberry tree is planted on left hand side of the path near the gate.

S.H.

1878
