Sunday. February 1st.

Attended at Church all day at Federal Street. Heard Mr. Gannett whom I liked less even than usual. There are a species of men, who to a proud and sensitive mind, with the best meaning in the world, turn all religion into disgust. I must leave this Church if I wish to preserve my Christian feelings. Mr. Gannet belongs to a gloomy, denunciatory style of preachers who meet either my aversion or my contempt. { 341 } Passed the afternoon with George, where I saw what I did not wish to see, and drank tea with Miss Harriet Welsh where I conversed much upon many subjects.
