Mrs. Welch and Betsey Smith came from Boston this morning; we all went to Weymouth
and dined at Doctor Tufts's. In the afternoon I went over to Mr. Norton's house; where
in my Infancy I have spent many days, which I scarcely remember even as a distant
dream; but before this day I had not been in the house these nine years.1
As I returned from Weymouth I was overtaken by the rain, and stop'd at Mr. Cranch's;
but it did not abate, and I went home in the midst of it.
