Returned to town but not to remain long. P. C. Brooks Jr. came into the Office and informed me that he had a letter from his father, telling him to prepare himself to come on and with an intimation that Abby would also be wanted. I thought that it would be as well to inform her of it and so went out again to Medford, just in time to dine. I have a disposition to leave here myself and pay a visit to our family if Abby should leave me and take away my only object for remaining. Had some conversation with her upon the subject.
