Monday 6th.

My room was not remarkably good but I rested pretty well and went to the Office early. Found there a very agreeable letter from my father with a remittance to the usual amount.1 He seems to be in high spirits and writes with great animation. This put me in good spirits all day. I cannot say that I did much however excepting to look over the eighth Oration of Cicero against Antony which my father asked me to read. In the afternoon I wrote an answer to him which was long and upon many subjects. Evening, to see Miss Harriet Welsh where I remained until ten.
