Mild, and streets complete rivers. Rain at night. Extreme dampness, and bad walking kept me at home to.day. It was the Communion Sabbath, and I felt an anxiety to join in the solemn commemoration, yet my heart was not right, and a fearfull timidity overcame my better nature. Mr H. did not attend Church to.day; he feels a cold comeing on. Asa Snyder took tea with us to night.
