Tuesday 8th.

Performed the requisite duties of the Morning, but spent the day fishing with John and found better sport than we have yet had this summer. But on my return, I felt so exhausted that I think I shall have to give up these trips in the boat. The rowing is too much for me. Not so much on account of strength however as the fear of receiving injury from the exertion. Evening quietly in my room as the family had gone to pass the Evening at my aunt Frye’s.
