Saturday March 13th. 1858.

It is now exactly 7 months this evening
since I left home I recollect that night
well & will as long as I live. It seems to me
foolish now to have left all my dearest friends
for any sort of worldly advantage. I often
picture to myself now what I might have
done at home. I might have settled
down in some beautiful country spot
had a nice comfortable house & garden.
I would have my horse & go round my
visits & come home cheerful & happy &
then I would have had my mother living
with me & my father & brothers & sisters
coming to stay with me whenever they
had time to spare & our time would
have passed thus happily but still
I cannot look back with regret as yet.
My youth would have prevented my
obtaining practice for length of time
& I hope I may ever be able to look
back with joy on the year or two
