Saturday 10th.

My head was but little better although not so violent and convinced me that I wanted medicine. Office in the morning but felt quite unable to remain there. Chardon Brooks came with an invitation from his father to me to go and dine there with a party, which I was compelled to decline on prudent considerations. I took some medicine and remained at my room. My day was rather dismal as I felt incapacitated from pursuing any, even the lightest employment, so I laid on the bed, until early in the evening when I went to bed for the night.
