Thursday. May 8th.

Returned to town in Mr. Brooks’ Carriage with Mrs. Brooks, Mrs. Everett and Abby. The morning was very beautiful. Found George had returned and had a good deal of conversation with him about affairs at Washington. He thinks political prospects looking up. I have not much hope. He says my father is very thin and pale, which I am sorry to hear. The rest of the family are well. Read a little of Blackstone. Afternoon at my room copying Executive Record and reading Novanglus. Evening, George called and we had further conversation.
