February 9, 1849 (Friday)

My intended visit to Norristown today was rather dearly paid for.  Had intended coming in the stage, and told the driver to be sure and call me, as it started so early as 5 o’clock; but the fellow neglected doing so, and being determined to go through N. took a notion to foot it, which I did in 2 ¼ hours, reaching Nor. By 9 o’clock, and left there in the 11 o’clock train for P., and now feel like retiring.

Norristown is ten miles from Phoenixville where Nathan spent the previous night.
