Sunday 21st.

Morning attended at Meeting and heard Dr. Channing deliver a Sermon on the substance of natural religion, the unity of God. It was not to me as good as usual. My thoughts were more difficult to control. But some passages seemed eloquent. The reason that I did not like it was that there was a little sectarianism, and not a little weak argument in it in it’s support. This gave me a dislike to it which I could not well get over. After dinner I went to Medford and passed the evening pleasantly as usual.
