Saturday August 4th. 1827.

We arrived at Providence in 19 hours from New York. The time would have been still less had it not been for a fog which enveloped us a short distance round Point Judith. From Providence we were eight or nine hours in reaching Quincy owing to the heat of the day. I stopped here but a few minutes and then went on to Boston. But it was late before I arrived and I then found Mr. Chardon Brooks Jr.1 with a Note from his Father asking me to go to Medford which of course I could not do at that time in the evening so I deferred it.
1. Peter Chardon Brooks Jr. (1798–1880). See Adams Genealogy. The note from P. C. Brooks Sr. is missing.
