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.
