Fine day. I went to the Office. Time taken up by Diary and progress in the Register. I am going over the ground of the volume of Debates I have been reading in order to keep hold of the thread. The Account gives more of a party tinge to the proceedings for which allowance must of course be made.

Walk. Fell in with Chapman and talked with him. I perceive a gradual revival of the old federal secession and new Southern nullification doctrines in this Community. Thus it is that opposition in this Country always precipitates itself into ultra measures. Afternoon, Dubos and the Hecyra of Terence. Even quietly at home. Our days are so monotonous as hardly to need a Journal. German.
