Thursday 26th.

Returned to town this morning without accident. Found a letter for me at the Office from my Mother giving an account of her present situation but not saying a single syllable about her probable time of departure.1 Then in Court, heard a case argued upon stoppage in transitu. This occupied a larger part of the morning. Afternoon, Say’s Political Economy and in the evening, Pope’s Correspondence with Ladies, which is particularly conceited.
1. LCA described the house at Meridian Hill, to which she and JQA had retired after leaving the White House (LCA to CFA, 19 March 1829, Adams Papers). See also entry for 3 April, and note, below.
