Morning occupied in reading Plato. Surprised by the appearance of Henry Brooks whom I drove to Medford at eleven o’clock. The day was foggy and unpleasant. Passed the time as usual excepting that I may say with pleasure and gratitude that I was extremely happy. I have always thought myself in a happy condition and in dread of futurity. This increases as I grow older and the effect of it damps my present enjoyment.
