Sunday. 16th.

This day passed with but little incident of a nature worthy to be recorded. I was almost all day in conversation with Abby upon indifferent subjects and was pleased as I always am. She went to Meeting in the afternoon, during which time I read some of Miss Wakefield’s Botany.1 Mr. Thomson paid a visit and drank tea this evening, introducing a Mr. Stewart, another Englishman.
