Wrote a letter to my Mother1 which detained me at my room sometime longer than usual. Then to the Office but did not find time to do any thing. At one o’clock I left town for Winter Hill having engaged to dine there. Found Col. Miller, the Greek hero, there and did not admire him.2 Abby was there, and a certain Mr. Bourne dined there. I knew him by sight formerly. We spent the afternoon there 247and returned to Medford in the evening. Mr. Everett seemed occupied in other things.




Jonathan Peckham Miller, a Vermont soldier who had helped the Greeks fight for their independence (Harold Schwartz, Samuel Gridley Howe, Cambridge, 1956, p. 10).
