The weather exceedingly warm. Went to Meeting in the morning 252and heard somebody preach a very commonplace Sermon. I could not distinctly remember who the person was. In the afternoon we had a thunder shower but without relieving the air materially. I slept during a portion of it. Evening, a short walk with Abby. Passed an extremely pleasant day.

Returned to Boston with Mr. Brooks. Morning extremely warm. I felt so uncomfortable that I resorted to a cold bath which effectually restored me for the day. Conversed with George upon the subject of my proposed arrangement to live at Quincy. I have almost made up my mind upon the subject. Received an extremely long letter from my Father together with a remittance as generous as any of the preceding ones. His kindness to me is really gratifying. Afternoon, Executive Record, and packing up my books which are a sad trouble to me. A person should expect to be stationary for life before he indulges in a library. A thunder shower came upon us and effectually cooled the air. I went out to walk in the evening, met J. R. Otis and shortly afterwards, J. B. Joy. Did not leave them until ten o’clock.
