1914 – July 16th

The week is over and we leave here to-morrow for Teignmouth. It has been a marvellous week for both of us – such splendid happy Christianity, such a force and fervour, such gifted speakers, so many doubts resolved, so many problems helped in their solution. We have made many friends. At the Sports yesterday I had to make a speech and I was announced as “Stalky”, so to-day I have to spend all my time writing autographs. We have found nothing new here, but the realization of nearly all my ideals – happiness in religion, prayers with a smiling face – interdenominationalism – no Churches but one Church based on Christ before the Churches.

Yesterday we had an excursion, 400 of us through one of the Derbyshire Dales – the country is lovely. It has been a piece of good fortune that Agnes Giles should have been here with us and it is quaint to find her waiting on us at meals. It is nice, too, to have Muriel Harris here and see her in her true milieu. What immense good could be done if there were more of these Conferences and if people could only realise what a joy they are.
