Loch Airidh na Lice (‘Arrah na L’), just west of Stornoway,  by Gina G. Morrison, 15 June 1900

Wednesday 1st June

I had a letter from Robert.

Thursday 2nd June

The fishing very light. Not much doing.

Friday 3rd June

Pretty busy today. A light fishing.

Saturday 4th June

A light fishing. I was very busy today. I received the goods from Wilson & Matheson.

Sunday 5th June

In the morning Mr McNeil preached from the 16th chapter of Romans 25th & 26th verses Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ according to the revelation of the Mystery which was kept secret since the world began but now is made manifest and by the scriptures of the prophets according to the commandment of the everlasting God made known to all nations for the obedience of faith. In the evening he preached from the 24th verse of the 17th chapter of John Father I will that they also whom thou hast given me be with me where I am that they may behold my glory which thou hast given me for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the work.

Monday 6th June

For the rest of the month I did not take any notes being kept so very busy. There was a very heavy fishing about the middle of the month. On the 10th John McKenzie got ill which was a great disappointment to me having none but myself and so much doing. I wrote for Robert. He came by the “Vanguard” on the 23rd and I had very much need of him. The fishermen commenced at this time to settle their accounts before leaving. I drew in June £245-3-6.
