Saturday 29th.

I returned to Boston pretty rapidly, as the weather was quite cold. Called at George’s where I met John and returned to the Exchange with him where I remained to dine. Went to Quincy in the Stage with George. Found there Mr. Harrod1 and two daughters and Miss Julia Dearborn2 on visits to the family of my Uncle.
1. Presumably Charles Harrod, brother of Mrs. TBA. One of the daughters was Susan D. Harrod, who in 1832 married William Boyd of Portland (Columbian Centinel, 15 Sept. 1832).
2. This noted belle was the daughter of General Henry Dearborn and the future wife of General Joshua Wingate (NEHGR, 5 [1851]:201; 19 [1865]:351).
