[Campton—Thursday, 30 June 1864]

Campton. Thursday June 30. Weather breezy, cool, almost cold at night and morning. J.T.F. away since Monday in Boston. Walked about five miles after 7 o’clk last night. Trying to find a good specimen of Linnea to send to H.P. stopped at the Durgins while deep in the woods beyond their house a whippoorwill screamed so loud at my side it was difficult to persuade myself it was not a person imitating him. The white throated swallow too gave one long t e e e - te te te - te te te - te.
