Morning agreeable. Soon on my circuit and found sufficiently extensive to occupy the day. Returned before dark and spent the evening with several young men of the village. But here I find no food for my mind except it be a stronger determination to never accustom myself to such amusement because there is benefit resulting from them, but the tendency is immoral. It is a very improper place for boys just growing up, as they are presented with conduct and conversation of the most obscene nature.
