Tuesday. 26th.

Rode into Boston, John being with me, the weather being exceedingly warm. Morning at the Office, but it was too warm to read any { 273 } Law, and I decided upon taking a bath. This occupied pretty much all the morning, after which I dined with John at the Exchange Coffee House. Met Lt. F. C. Hall of the Marines who amused us though at his own expence.1 He had taken rather fully of the grape. After all this was over I rode to Medford. Found Abby well and walked to the partings with her. Evening very warm, making a succession of hotter days than any this season.
1. Francis C. Hall, a second lieutenant in the marine corps ( Mass. Register, 1828, p. 214).
