Sunday 8th.

Fine morning. Went to Meeting and heard Mr. Stetson preach a Sermon which did not amount to much. Remained at home in the afternoon and read a little in my usual way concerning the culture of trees. After Abby returned from Meeting, I was furnished with one of Mr. Brooks’ horses and drove over with her to Winter Hill to pay Mr. Everett a visit. Mr. E. looks tolerably well. We had not been there long before Mr. and Miss Shepherd came in and then Mr. and Miss Perkins, which made quite a large party. After tea, we returned to Medford, it being the first Summer evening we have had.
