Morning at the Office and in the Circuit Court. The Captain who was tried on Thursday last was sentenced today. One hundred dollars fine and two years and a half of imprisonment. Called upon Mrs. Ticknor with George. At one o’clock went out with him to Jamaica Plains and dined with Mr. Boylston. He looked to me much worse than when we saw him on Friday. A certain Mr. Curtis dined with us, a sensible man.1 After drinking tea, we took leave of him perhaps for ever. The day had been very unpleasant. In the evening it rained, but I was quietly at home.
Nathaniel Curtis, of Roxbury, who was to become, along with JQA, an executor of Ward N. Boylston’s complicated will (JQA, Diary, 25 June 1829).
