Sunday 2d.

Went to Meeting in the morning with Abby and Miss Bartlett. Heard Mr. Stetson as usual. In the afternoon a snow storm which afterwards changed to rain. I occupied myself by reading Cooper’s late Novel, the Red Rover, which possesses much interest—with the usual faults of the author.1 Mrs. Everett’s children are unwell and the family looks solitary. I felt in but middling spirits.
