(30 June should be Wednesday to be consistent with days following - but here again we keep consistent with Journal.)

I am, however, well aware this is a difficult undertaking for an individual in a dependent situation, but you have no necessity to labor for the wealthy for nothing, so much at lest as to keep you from entirely accumulating a home of your own. I can conceive of no place free from crime more disagreeable than for a man of a family to be seated in a situation that may entirely depend on the will of another. One from which he may be drove at any moment regardless of every feeling or consideration. I may myself come ever to this state, yet it does not the less require me to advise you to act the way best calculated to avoid it.
