Sunday 14th.

Not having received any letters from home last night leading me to suppose that my presence would be needed at Quincy today, I decided upon going to Medford and in consequence rode out early. Found the family much as usual. Mrs. Brooks looks very poorly. Mrs. Frothingham and her family and Mrs. Everett were at dinner. Little or nothing occurred of any incident. It was not one of my pleasant days, for my spirits were low and Abby was not in her pleasantest mood though I found nothing to complain of. I sometimes require much soothing, and sometimes receive it in most delightful ways, but this was not one of the days.
