Three years ago on this day, I was married. So far, I have never had occasion to repent it. Much has been said upon the danger of marrying 357early, but for a man constituted like me I believe it to be something of a safeguard.

Went to town with the expectation of remaining all day, but as the Boylston Market Directors did not meet I returned at the usual time. J. Q. Adams Jr. went in with me. I was engaged morning round in various errands, and doing little or nothing serious.

On my return, found my Mother had gone to town and was not yet returned. Afternoon, I read some of Seneca though not much from it’s being shorter than usual from delay of dinner. Evening quiet at home.
