Wednesday September 24th.

Lincoln went yesterday for Hingham; I went with Mr. and Mrs. Shaw to Andover. There was a large company at Mr. Symmes's; and after dinner we had a lecture, the Sermon was intolerably long. Singing remarkably good. We got back to Haverhill just after Sun-set. My Brother Charles with Daniel Russell arrived here this evening. Charles obtained leave to come and see me. Mr. Thaxter and his Lady pass'd part of the evening here.

Saturday September 27th.

Another tedious sleepless night. Charles and Russell returned to Cambridge. I dined at Mr. White's. And in the afternoon got a little sleep which greatly refreshed my drooping spirits. Mr. French was here in the evening.
