Sunday. 6th.

Read a little Philosophy before going out to Medford. Rode out after breakfast. Weather cold and raw. Found Abby was not well. Did not go to Meeting during the day, but remained at home consulting books upon agriculture and the planting of trees. But little however can be learned from the mere theory. Practice must do the rest. Afternoon with Abby. Evening, Dr. Swann, the family physician came in. And consequently I sat but a short time with Abby.
