The weather did not relax at all in the intensity of cold. I suffered very much in
dressing this morning. My room happening to be very cold. Attended Meeting in the
Morning at Dr. Channing’s. Heard Mr. Gannett preach a Sermon not to my taste. Rode
out to Medford as usual. Did not suffer so much from the air as I anticipated, being
well protected in every part excepting my hands. Found the family rather dull I thought,
at this [time?]. Abby complained of a cold and rheumatism. I passed the time much as usual. Pleasantly
enough. Mr. Brooks was pleasant. I like his manner to me much better than I used to.
