Saturday 27th.

Morning at the Office. I forgot to mention yesterday the receipt of an extraordinary Note from John portending much.1 But as he does not say what is to come I shall patiently wait until his nerves become more calm. Also a letter from my father. At eleven I went to see Abby and called with her at Mrs. Dexter’s. An old lady whom I met at Nahant, the widow of Samuel Dexter. After dinner I rode with Abby to Winter Hill where we drank tea with Mrs. Everett, and in the evening after a pleasant conversation, we rode over to Medford where we found only Mr. and Mrs. Brooks.
