This afternoon I took a ride with Dr. Kilham, as far as Newtown to see Mr. Dalton,
but neither he nor his lady were at home. We rode a mile or two beyond that, and returned
just after dark: that road is very good and the prospects all around are very beautiful;
but the leaves begin to fall, and the year appears to proceed rapidly on a decline.
Amory was with me part of the evening.
