Mild day. I went to the Office and passed my time in making up the arrears of the last few days. My fathers Address appeared this morning in the Advocate1 but it did not appear in the Advertiser. I did not suppose it would.

Walk. Then I went according to invitation to dine with Mr. Brooks—245Company, Mr. John Parker, Mr. Dudley Hall, R. D. Shepherd, R. D. Tucker, P. C. Brooks Jr. and myself. Tolerably pleasant but nothing remarkable. I returned home at dark and passed a quiet evening reading Ormond to my Wife. Lord Bacon.
