Diary of John Quincy Adams, volume 2



12th. JQA 12th. Adams, John Quincy

The weather cleared up in the morning, and the cold since noon has increased very fast. We pass'd an hour in the evening at Mr. Gannett's; he was not at home: Mrs. G. is quite historical; that is she gives a very minute history of whatever occurs to herself or her family.

Up late reading parliamentary debates.1 Packard came to see us, this afternoon.


JQA may have been preparing for his declamation, given on 27 Feb. (below), on “part of one of Mr. Fox's speeches.”
