Cool and clear. Morning to town. Afternoon at home. Evening at the Mansion.

I went to town and passed most of my time at the Office engaged in making up my accounts and in copying some papers for my father relative to the affairs of Mr. Boylston. This took most of my time.

Home. Lucan Pharsalia finished the seventh book with the sketch of the battle of Pharsalia. His sketch of Caesar is below the standard of the historians.

Passed some time in work but felt the coming on of a headach. This is a new state for me which I do not understand or admire and depresses my spirits. I had been so free all the winter. I suspect it is acid and so I took soda which relieved me. Evening at the Mansion where were Mr. Beale and his daughter.
