Sunday. 3rd.

Remained at home during the morning reading Michaux and walking about the grounds. The weather was very pleasant. Mr. Brooks was quite unwell and I went to Meeting in his place in the afternoon. He is now at the age at which all of his family have died and he feels a little alarmed at the signs which indicate any sickness in him. He is a very estimable character and will live long, I hope, to enjoy the pleasant old age which is in prospect for him. Mr. Wallcut preached,1 a very fatiguing minister. Mr. R. D. Shepherd and his daughter called and took tea. She is a pleasant little girl. Evening passed very quietly at home.
1. Robert Folger Wallcut, Harvard 1817, graduated from the Divinity School in 1820.
