Morning at the Office. Mr. Webster there for the first time. Wrote a letter to my mother1 which occupied me the greater part of the time. Mr. Brooks asked me to go to Medford with him to which I consented and went accordingly to dine. The day was warm being the first of the kind this season. Found the family much as usual. Chardon and his wife in Boston, and Gorham out here. The conduct of this young man seems singular but I have not troubled myself with curiosity about him. J. Joy at tea.2 Evening quiet.
