Sunday. 17th.

Beautiful morning. Went to Meeting and heard a Mr. Farmer whom I remember as a Divinity Student at Cambridge.1 Tolerable. The day passed without any material occurrence excepting that one could not help being struck with the difference in the family by the absence of the elder portions of it. Mrs. Brooks constitutes one great charm of it. Had a good deal of conversation with Abby and saw her in a new light, although I was not unaware of it’s existence.
1. William Farmer, Harvard 1819, who had graduated from the Divinity School in 1823.
