Fine day. Distribution as usual. Evening visit.

My time at the Office was taken up in finishing various little duties which I recollected still to remain unperformed. Wrote to Mr. Frye respecting the execution of the Will of T. B. Adams, sent a letter to 158the publisher of the Concord paper and left one for an old tenant Miss Oliver,1 besides calling upon the painter Kauffer. These little details it is pleasant to get rid of. I then walked round to take a look at the South Cove.

Home. Alcestis. Coins and Crevier. A visit in the evening to see Mr. and Mrs. Frothingham and a pleasant talk for an hour. A very agreeable place to visit in a sociable way. Nothing new.
