Fine morning. Occupied a short time before going to Boston in the Nursery. At the Office and the Court of Common Pleas attempting to gain a little insight into the course of practice. Went to Mrs. Frothingham’s to see Abby. She has come into town to remain until Friday and I find the inconvenience of living out of town but I decided upon returning to Quincy rather than pass a hot and unpleasant night at the Exchange Coffee House. Passed the afternoon at Mrs. Frothingham’s but did not find much gratification in it. Returned to Quincy in a train of reflection which could lead to melancholy naturally. Took a bath at the Creek with John Q.1
and Joseph H. Adams, sons of my Uncle, T. B. Adams. Pleasant evening.
