Morning sultry but the Wind afterwards veered and it became quite cold. I walked with the child previous to going to the Office. My cold however still so very troublesome, that I could do little or nothing with comfort.

I was obliged to go upon several pieces of business which took up time and fatigued me also. Called at the Boylston Market, made up the Record and made the arrangements for the purpose of calling a meeting of Stockholders to authorize the Appropriation contemplated as I mentioned heretofore. These various occupations engrossed all my time until dinner. Afterwards, I read Botta.

Evening walked out with my Wife and paid a visit at Mr. Frothingham’s. Conversation upon the Theatre, Miss Kemble and Francis the first.1 We returned early and I continued Chateau-briand.


Fanny Kemble was the author of a tragedy, Francis the First.
