Morning at the Office. The weather which had been cold and chilly cleared up at noon. I attended to the papering [of] my room which is the last repair I put to it. I now have only to furnish it. My time was in some measure wasted in attendance upon two Auctions where I was desirous of obtaining some things but did not succeed. I rode out to Medford with Mr. Brooks. Found Abby as usual. Mrs. Brooks quite sick. Mr. and Mrs. Frothingham were out in the afternoon, and were very pleasant. On the whole, the day passed rapidly. In the evening, Conversation with Abby. Future Arrangements.
