After the morning’s occupation I agreed to go fishing with my brother John, and we spent the day having some tolerable sport down at the bridge, which is the best place in the river. On my return I found a letter from Abby, and also found two gentlemen, Mr. Reed1 and his son, who dined with us. They are from Philadelphia. Miss Selina Roberdeau is now on a visit here. Rode with John.


Joseph Reed (1772–1846), the son of the Revolutionary statesman of that name, was recorder of the city of Philadelphia from 1810 to 1829 (JQA, Diary, 8 June 1827; Appletons’ Cyclo. Amer. Biog. ).
