Morning pleasant but very warm. I went to town alone, and finding that my father had really arrived at Quincy on Sunday night, after a hurried day I started for Quincy. My time was mainly engrossed by visitors. Mr. Hurlbert talking about the Lease of the House in Court Street and Isaac Hull Adams to see me.343
I found my father looking very well and quite lively. We spent the afternoon in conversation about political affairs and home affairs. He explained his opinions upon various subjects. I did not find them very different from what I had anticipated. Evening passed quietly also in the same manner.
