Morning occupied in walking about the town to see the changes which had taken place
during my absence. Visited the new Market House which attracts so much attention1
and walked into one of the Halls where they were selling Furniture to see whether
I could not obtain some but there was very little which was not evidently made for
Sale and that little did not sell low. From there I went directly to Medford, and
passed the remainder of the day and the evening, not returning to town.
