Have been constantly on the road and in chamber of distress and have had the satisfaction of finding several of my dangerous patients convalescent. This to me is more than satisfactory, it is delightful. Spent a few hours in company with A. Conrad, Subject Religion. He is tinctured with superstition and thinks an endless Hell is, or will be, the abode of sinners. I leave all to enjoy their own ideas on this subject. But I had a desire to terminate this conversation and speak a few words with Miss H. Accordingly, the opportunity soon presented itself and was embraced, and in a few moments had to terminate, but it was satisfactory.
