Wednesday. 7th.

Morning at the Office, Blackstone. George not returned although I received today a letter from my father mentioning his having started on Thursday last. Went to Medford with Mr. Brooks. Sat with Abby almost all day. Mr. and Mrs. Hall were there and disturbed us a little. It was one of my happy days. My spirits suffer under an extraordinary pressure and I cannot tell when it will be removed. But I enjoy many moments of extreme happiness notwithstanding and some of them today.
