[This order was modified several times; see the schedules list for more details]
[I have adopted the letters book version, because the orders book skips "Supper", and has the time but no call listed at 8-1/2 pm. Besides the usual minor variations, the orders book also has 5-1/2 and 6 instead of 5 and 5-1/2 pm, and the letters book has 'in Order Book' written vertically to the left of list.]
