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.
