Thursday 11th.

Returned to town early with Mr. Brooks. Found no later information from my father which leads me to conclude that he has actually started. The morning was occupied in going about making the few purchases which I consider as necessary for my Mother and in which I much feared I exceeded what I ought. The looseness of the present arrangement is one of the amusing things of the present time. My father seems to have an idea that every thing is to come right by magic. My mind has been much troubled about these things. The weather cold for the Season. Evening, a pleasant walk on the Common. One of my father’s tenants called about his house. I could give him no assistance.
