I finished my business today before the sun sunk below the western hills and returned home. Feeling rather melancholy and uneasy and full of unfavorable ideas, my inclination induced me to see H. I found her much in the same situation and apparently unhappy. i immediately guessed the cause to be of the nature of that spoken to me on the twenty-first day of May and found it to be of the same nature and today was the first time she had heard what her Mother had said to me at that time. It is of no advantage now to grieve for it is done, past and gone, and will think of the day now fast approaching and prepare for being contented when all these things cease from troubling.
