Sunday 29th.

The day was lovely, being the first of the kind which we have had during this season. As Abby wanted me to drive her out of town this morning, I called for her at eleven and reached Medford to dinner. Mr. and Mrs. Everett were there also and we had a tolerably pleasant day. Mrs. Brooks looks ill, very ill. My surprise is that she should continue to live as she does, but this idea would I presume very much distress the family if I was to express it, so I am silent. Returned to town in the afternoon. Roads not of the finest and I was glad to return safe from an excursion not entirely without danger. Evening, a very long walk, which fatigued me more than I expected and so I did not sleep so well as usual, but my day was on the whole very agreeable.
