Saturday. 9th.

Rode to Boston though late as I was unable immediately to recover [from] my fatigue of yesterday and as I passed a restless night. The weather again was exceedingly warm. Called upon Abby and with her and Ellen Shepherd went to see Mrs. Johnston. After a visit there, the remainder of the time was passed without much attention to any thing, { 266 } but I had no opportunity for writing to Mother. At dinner time I rode out to Winter Hill and found there assembled, Mr. and Mrs. Hale, Mr. and Miss Shepherd, Mr. Webster, Mr. G. Brooks, Mr. and Mrs. Johnston, Abby and myself. The dinner was pleasant but warm. Rode to Medford with Abby being much fatigued.
