The day was tolerably pleasant notwithstanding a cold Easterly wind that prevailed for an hour or more. I went to town. My time engrossed as usual. Called twice upon Mrs. Frothingham on my Wife’s account, dropped in for a moment at an auction and engaged upon Accounts. Collected some Dividends, among others that of the Columbian Office which turns out remarkably well. This is about the sum total of the Account that I can give.
Returned home at my usual time but the Afternoon was not profitable. Mr. J. H. Foster and daughter made a short visit to the family. I made a little progress in Henderson but I want a Map. In the evening, my father and I went up to Mr. T. Greenleaf’s—A strawberry party of 106Quincy people. The fruit was good and we got along on the whole amazingly well. Returned early and I read the Observer. Not a very profitable day.
