Sunday 31st.

Morning cloudy but not unpleasant. I rode to Medford and found the family much as usual excepting that it was large. Chardon, Mrs. Everett, Miss Phillips, John Gorham,1 and in the afternoon, Sidney and his wife, who have just arrived from New York. The afternoon turned off cold. I am never so fond of Medford when so many of the family are there, as I am thereby compelled to see less of Abby. But I had a very pleasant evening and on the whole felt well satisfied.
1. John Gorham was a brother of Abigail Brooks’ friend Julia Gorham (CFA, Diary, 24 Oct. 1829).
