Sunday 30th.

This day was passed without any remarkable occurrence excepting a constant attendance at Meeting on my part. I heard Mr. Gannett in the morning upon humility. Mr. Barrett in the afternoon upon progress in religion; and having called to see George and pass an hour with him, I took tea there, and we went to hear Dr. Channing at Mr. Ware’s Church in the evening. His sermon was on scepticism founded on disbelief of miracles. I was much pleased and instructed. He is a striking Preacher and now and then becomes eloquent. My day therefore was not badly spent and I cannot say that on the whole, I felt low-spirited at all, though it was my Medford day.
