Sunday. 23d.

Attended Meeting all day. In the afternoon Sidney Brooks came out with Mr. Ignatius Sargent.1 This gentleman is the partner in business of Chardon Brooks, and is more particularly interesting as having been a rival of mine, and a most assiduous one supported by a large portion of her own family and not positively disliked by herself. Had I not come in, it is probable from her own showing that he would have been the man. Poor fellow, his meeting with me was painful to him, but without any possibility of my alleviating it. Perhaps she might have been more happy with him although she never loved him and she does love me. In the evening Mr. and Mrs. Everett and some Medford visitors.
