Tuesday. 21st.

Morning pleasant. After copying a little, passed the morning in great indolence. Went out with Thomas B. Adams to show him some of the Lions of the City. We went to the Capitol Hill and I made a stop with him at Judge Cranch’s for him to deliver some letters. We then walked over the Capitol looking at all things that were to be seen: to me they were familiar, but I was still glad of an opportunity to look at them again, perhaps for the last time. After a considerable examination, we returned, having passed the afternoon pretty completely. After dinner Mrs. Smith, Abby Adams, Thomas and I went down to drink tea with Mrs. Frye. We found Johnson Hellen there. Mrs. Newman from Baltimore is at present on a visit to her. The evening passed quite pleasantly.
