Sunday. 24th.

The day was beautiful. One of those lovely ones which we have when the new approach of Summer throws every thing like vegetation out in the most brilliant colours. When the whole Country shows forth with vivid and brilliant green, and the air is soft and delightful to second the effect. I went to Meeting in the morning and heard a certain Mr. Gannet whom I did not like at all.1 Mrs. Everett and Miss Phillips at dinner. Mrs. Brooks very unwell. Abby also unwell until evening when she became better and was with me.
1. Presumably Thomas B. Gannett, a Congregational minister in Cambridge ( Mass. Register, 1829, p. 113).
