Showers. To town. Return to dinner. Afternoon at home, head ach.

Since I have come to Quincy this summer, my head has troubled me in an unusual degree, so much as somewhat to depress my spirits. I went to town in fair weather but it threatened showers in one of which I was caught in the Streets and another when returning home. Time taken up in paying and settling accounts and dropped in at Warrens’ where I bought a coin or two. Nothing new.

Buckingham publishes my second paper today upon Carolina having 262already published the first on Saturday. I drew back the third today for correction, but returned it before leaving town.

Afternoon a little of Tacitus, but the doubtful state of my head made me work very languidly. Evening at the Mansion for an hour.
