My headache left me before evening yesterday. Wrote to Whittredge today that I would not come to Newport and now I am adrift again as to what I will do. I am troubled because I am not at work. Next year if possible I must lay my plans to go somewhere where I can be at work all summer. I waste too much time. A letter came today for Sara from Lucy but as Sara is expected home on Saturday it was not opened. Wilmurt sent me his bill of $31 but I was obliged to write him that I could not send him the money just now. It has rained a little and there are indications of an Easterly Storm but it does not rain easily and I fear it will pass by. Our well is almost dry for the first time since we have lived here.
