The weather was very fine; I took a long walk in the evening with Thompson and Putnam.
Thompson left us, and went to see Parson Spring. Putnam came home, and past the remainder
of the evening with me. I have used myself for several days past to rise very early,
and should wish to do so through the Summer: but my propensity to sleep is so great,
that it is almost always impossible for me to awake so soon as I wish.1
