Hall presumably visited Bourton to inspect his new cushion (and to see his sister-in-law) a couple of months later, as the entry for September 4 1765 reads "Took Mrs Snooke behind me to Aylworth, when she fell off from the Horse on my opening a gate, but received no hurt".
MR observes that it is clear that Snooke was much involved with the building of the Baptist meeting place and also saw it as his duty to look after the pastor. His diaries apparently reveal that he paid Beddome 2 guineas every Quarter Day as well as contributing at Christmas to the cost of cleaning and heating the building in which he preached. Snooke was a very regular attender but, for some reason, was not baptised or a member. Beddome was also to become an important spiritual adviser to Hall.
