Sunday 9th.

Morning occupied in reading one of Miss Edgeworth’s Tales, Patronage.1 She displays great knowledge of human nature in her work but is a little prosy now and then withal. Went to Meeting this morning and heard Mr. Stetson deliver a tolerably good Sermon with an intolerable air. Occupied in reading much of the time in the after-220noon while the family remained at Meeting. In the evening Mr. Ward, a Medford gentleman, paid a visit and conversed much on many subjects, and among others, political ones.


CFA’s set of the Works of Maria Edgeworth, 13 vols., Boston, 1825, is in the Stone Library.
