Sunday. March 1st.

Attended service in the morning and heard Mr. Gannet deliver a Sermon as usual. Differing but little from any preceding ones which I have heard from him. The day was cold and blustering, fit weather for the month we commence. After dinner, I went to Medford in a sleigh, it being the first time I recollect to have driven a thing of the kind, and the first for a long time that I have been in one. I got there safe and glad to see Abby again after so long a separation. She was more affectionate even than usual, and I felt my feelings soothed and my happiness raised to a degree which has not happened before for a long time. Not that I have not been occasionally very much so, but this was an evening “par excellence.”
