Wednesday 11th.

Morning at the Office. Kent. Conversation with George and examination of a cargo of seeds which has been sent round from Washington. This occupied all the morning and in the next place I rode with Mr. Brooks to Medford. Found Mr. and Mrs. Frothingham at Medford but Abby had gone out which vexed me a good deal. Had { 246 } a pleasant dinner and after dinner a good deal of company. Among others, Winthrop Gray, a cousin of Abby’s, and a most disagreeable animal. Rode down with him to Mrs. Gray’s and walked up with Abby. My feelings were so strong I could not help expressing them for which I was afterwards sorry. Abby was quite sick with a headache.
