At Medford all day without attending Church. Mr. Stephen Gorham was here. A brother
of Mrs. Brooks’.1
And while the family were absent Mr. and Mrs. E. Brooks called.2
As they have been living in the Country and not within convenient reach I have been
deferring my visit to them from time to time. And it is unfortunate that of all the
family they are the most punctilious. I have had notice that they are offended and
must make up as soon as possible. Their treatment was civil but distant. Mr. Shepherd
and his daughter also came in, and Gorham Brooks. Quiet in the evening.
