Sunday 20th.

Attended Meeting this morning. Heard a Mr. Farley, a disciple of Cambridge, and better than usual.1 Little else during the day, read the North American and allowed myself to get foolishly dull which affected Abby. This will not do. Mr. Angier,2 Dr. Swann,3 Miss Mary Hall and her brothers, all of Medford, passed the evening here.
