Sunday 21st.

I had intended to have gone to Church this morning, but happening to go to my Mother’s room, I became engaged in a conversation with her which made me pass the time without attending to it. We talked over affairs of the family of an interesting though scarcely of a pleasant description. And I discussed my own prospects without much illuminating my mind upon the subject. Thus passed the morning. I received a letter from Abby at last and it had a good effect upon my spirits during the whole day afterwards. Took a ride with my Mother who is recovering rapidly. The remainder of the day occupied in answering Abby’s letter. Evening with my Mother.
