Thursday. 27th.

I returned to Boston bringing Abby with me. Morning at the Office. At one o’clock paid a congratulatory visit to Miss Frances Dehon,1 lately declared to be the choice of Mr. Sidney Brooks. I found her pleasant but not in the least handsome, and scarcely qualified to supply the place of his former betrothed, Miss Marshall. In the afternoon at the Office and in the evening at George’s. His situation makes me quite melancholy.
1. The daughter of William Dehon, partner in an auctioneering firm, who lived at 7 Bulfinch Place (Boston Directory, 1829–1830).
