The Diary of James Brogden, August 1871 – December 1872

19 April 1872

19 April 1872

In walking over the Railway route this next morning we found a Limestone Quarry, - full of fossils. During the whole day we went over very good land. In the afternoon we arrived at a place called Milton, where the Court had been sitting, and as we were refreshing ourselves, we received much to our astonishment an invitation to dine with the Judge. We had only our one suit of clothes, and thick boots – but go we must. Even there in that obscure place, Cards of the names were printed in gold and a grand Menu there was on the Card; - but I was yet more astonished to find that the Judge (Judge Ward), my next at table, was brother to a near neighbour at home.
