Sunday. 22nd.

Attended divine service all day, at Dr. Channing’s. Heard in the morning Mr. Gannet to whose Sermon I could not pay much attention. In the afternoon, Mr. Frothingham, a very remarkable address, upon toleration. I admire the sentiments of it, though I confess I think them ill adapted to our meridian. We are an intolerant people. The weather was disagreeable and a light snow was falling throughout the day, but as George had not been to the Office yesterday, I went to see how he was. Indolence and inactivity, mental and bodily, are his troubles. I spent an hour with him, and returned to tea. I thought in the evening I would visit Mrs. Frothingham, but was so coldly received that I shall not go there soon again.
