Morning agreeable, and I spent the day in reading, except the riding of a few miles, and a short time at Mr. Abraham Conrad's who is the stepfather of Miss H. Mrs. Conrad complains very much and is all wrapped up in herself, but his place begins to have a charm in it that I find in no other place, and I do not forget it as soon as I leave it, as other places.
