Set forward for Hamilton. Arrived by moonlight. The building used for religious purposes was occupied. No churchman could be found. Hamilton contains about 300 people. The road is over a steep rocky cliff the climbing and descent of which was very hard work.

Went to Hamilton on Monday. Said Evening Prayer in the church used generally for religious services and preached. Confirmed one person, Mary T. James. Returned home.

July 25, 1896
Went to Hamilton. Laid the cornerstone of St. Mary's Church. The good people could not obtain services of anyone to lay this stone at the proper time and therefore put it off until the building had been entirely finished with this one exception.
