Description

That day is chilled in my memory when I first set out for Cheltenham. It was in December 1840. The snow had been frozen on the ground a fortnight. There were three of us, Mrs. Holyoake Madeline our first child and myself. I had been residing in Worcester which was the first station to which I had been appointed as a Social Missionary. My salary was barely sufficient to keep us alive in summer.
