This morning my Cousin and Brother left us, to return back to Braintree. The late
thaw has made the roads very bad for them; but the weather has been agreeable, till
the Evening, which is Snowy. Mr. Piper, a Clergyman, belonging to Wakefield in New
Hampshire, spent the Night here; I felt not in so high spirits as I sometimes do,
and much in a silent mood: so that I did not stay to hear much of Mr. Piper's Conversation.
