Weather cloudy, cold and disagreeable. Did not go to Meeting at all today. Morning
occupied in gathering information with regard to trees and the afternoon in conversation
with Susan Brooks. In the evening, a good deal of Medford Company and as Mr. Brooks
and Chardon had gone over to see Mr. Everett who had returned, I was obliged to entertain
them, which to me is a bore. When they did get back, Mr. B. brought me a letter and
a box from my Mother containing a purse and a pair of little candle sticks for tapers.
The letter had not much news.
