April 8, Sunday.—After Church, the Curate came back with us.
I sent Carrie in to open front door, which we do not use except on special
occasions. She could not get it open, and after all my display,
I had to take the Curate (whose name, by-the-by, I did not catch,) round
the side entrance. He caught his foot in the scraper, and tore
the bottom of his trousers. Most annoying, as Carrie could not
well offer to repair them on a Sunday. After dinner, went to sleep.
Took a walk round the garden, and discovered a beautiful spot for sowing
mustard-and-cress and radishes. Went to Church again in the evening:
walked back with the Curate. Carrie noticed he had got on the
same pair of trousers, only repaired. He wants me to take round
the plate, which I think a great compliment.
