Sunday, 14 June, 1829

Peaceful day, you have arrived once more and found me at leisure from riding and i have reviewed my past conduct for several months and find that all has not been used so as to produce complete satisfaction, because had I the power now I would change many things that have been done by me. But I have endeavored to discharge my duty to my fellow man and for all that has been done amiss I hope the forgiveness of my creator and solicit his aid in directing me aright. I have spent several hours in company with H. and find all agreeable. This I expect will be the last Sunday I shall live a single man. I have no dread of the married life, but for one thing a fear that I shall not procure a competence.
