This morning I went to Mr. Sigourney's to carry the English news Papers to him, din'd at home. After dinner I went with Mr. Dana to take a walk, we went to Commodore Gillon's, he was not at home, but as we were returning, we met him, and Mr. Dana went to his house again with him, and I return'd home.
