Wednesday. 30th.

Rode to Boston after reading an hour or more. Found letters from my father and my mother but not a syllable in them as to any future { 262 } arrangement. Morning at the Office occupied in reading Cruise and a part of Judge Howe’s Lecture. At one o’clock, rode to Medford, found Abby pretty well and Mr. Brooks gone to Nahant. In the afternoon we rode to Winter Hill and passed the evening. Miss Mary Buckminster was there. She is engaged to be married to my classmate S. K. Lothrop who is now preaching in Washington.1 Mr. Everett conversed a good deal upon political matters. Mr. and Mrs. Edward Brooks were there also for a few minutes. On our return to Medford we found Mr. B. had got home with Judge Lyman of Northampton2 to whom I was introduced. I had seen him before but many years ago and had quite forgotten him.
1. Mary Lyman Buckminster, the daughter of Rev. Joseph Buckminster, of Portsmouth, N.H. (Columbian Centinel, 13 June 1829).
2. Levi Lyman, chief justice of the court of sessions in Hampshire county (Mass. Register, 1828, p. 30).
