Abstinence Tour of Robert Marshall (1819-1891) – Journal Entry of 3rd October 1839
I spent the greater part of this day in writing tee-total
songs for the people of Bervie.In the
afternoon, I took the coach for Stonehaven.But here again I suffered a silent ride.However the distance was not great.It only cost me 4/- this juant.In Stonehaven I was kindly received.Got lodgings of a Mr. Bowman, a grocer.In the evening I lectured to a large audience in the Methodist Chapel,
about 2 hours.Four names were
added.I proposed to lecture next night
in the same place.
