Morning very rainy. I would not have started from Quincy had I not thought that I
should be expected at Medford. The weather very disagreeable being entirely unsettled.
Read a little Law but on the whole passed the morning very uncomfortably, not feeling
as if I had any settled occupation. Rode to Medford at one o’clock. Passed the afternoon
and evening quietly in conversation with Abby and noticed nothing remarkable to put
in my Journal. The time passed pleasantly.
