18 August 1880: Taunton: ‘On Wednesday last the boys of St Saviour’s Home were kindly entertained at Springfield, West Monkton, by Mr James Paine, who has in many ways showed a deep interest in the welfare of this useful institution. To make the holiday more complete Mr Paine had also invited six lads from the training ship Formidable, who, by permission of Captain Nicholetts, were present, accompanied by an officer of the ship. There were beside two ‘old boys’ of the home. To convey his young guests from Taunton three wagons had been sent from Springfield, and the party reached Mr Paine’s at about half-past twelve, accompanied by the band of the 1st Somerset Light Infantry Militia (by permission of Major H. A. Adair). An abundant dinner of roast beef and plum pudding was then served and thoroughly enjoyed by the juvenile party. After the repast the lads were briefly addressed by Rev. T. Daniels, a visitor at Springfield. He mentioned that a former home boy, James Russell, had lately left the Formidable for Canada, taking with him the highest testimonial from the commanding officer. To this lad had been presented a silver watch and chain, with the inscription ‘Presented by Mr James Paine, of Springfield, Taunton, to James Russell, as a record of the high character he received from Captain Nicholetts when he left the training ship Formidable.’ During the afternoon the lads indulged in a variety of games in the meadows fronting the house; cricket, races, climbing the pole, &c., causing much amusement. A party of friends had been invited to join Mr and Mrs Paine at luncheon: the company including Dr Kelly, chairman of the St Saviour’s Home Committee; Rev. T. Daniels, M.A., rector of St Paul’s, Hulme, Manchester; Mrs T. Daniels; Rev. Gerard Unwin, of Cheddon Fitzpaine, and the Misses Unwin; Rev. V. Kinsman, vicar of St Andrew’s, Rowbarton; Rev. – Wilson; Mrs and the Misses Wilson, and Mr G. Wilson of Exeter College, Oxford. Lawn tennis was played during the afternoon. At half-past seven the boys left Springfield for home amid hearty cheers for their hospitable host and hostess, and the visit, which had been long looked forward to, will doubtless be long remembered.’
