Spent the whole day in my room keeping as quiet as possible. I had a dull headache and besides was obliged to keep quiet on account of my boil. Dr. Joslin came about noon and examined it. He thought it doing nicely and that I would be all right in a day or two. Had a letter from Sara in the morning from College Hill speaking very tenderly of Gertrude who has been in my thoughts all day. Mrs. Winter came in to see me and we talked of dear Gertrude and her eyes were full of tears. Bowyer came and dined with me and Downing came in in the evening.
