The weather looked so bad this morning that I was doubting about going to Boston but as it looked more promising after breakfast I rode in. Found two letters, one from my father and the other from my Mother which paid me amply for my trouble. Wrote to the former as usual. Then passed an hour in the Common pleas. Afternoon, Executive Record and finished Cicero pro Roscio Amerino. My return to Quincy was in rain although not of that chilling kind as on yesterday. Finished Charles 12th in the evening and conversation with Thomas.
