Passed the morning at home. We breakfast so late now that I have an opportunity to copy some of the Vaughan papers. And the remainder of the morning, I pass in reading the Life of Columbus to my Mother. It becomes more interesting as we proceed. Took a walk today making some stop at my Tailor’s to give him some orders. The day was very fine. My mother overtook me in the Carriage and I went to ride with her. The rest of the day passed in writing to Abby
at New York. Evening with my father and Mother, engaged in a pleasant and lively conversation.
