Returned to town but not to remain long. P. C. Brooks Jr. came into the Office and
informed me that he had a letter from his father, telling him to prepare himself to
come on and with an intimation that Abby would also be wanted. I thought that it would
be as well to inform her of it and so went out again to Medford, just in time to dine.
I have a disposition to leave here myself and pay a visit to our family if Abby should
leave me and take away my only object for remaining. Had some conversation with her
upon the subject.
