Monday 3rd.

Morning to town with Mrs. Frothingham and Abby in the Carriage. Engaged first in drawing and depositing for my Father the interest on the West Boston and Neponset Bridge Stock. After which I went to the new House and passed there a considerable part of the morning, in fitting the Keys and making preparation for my books. I moved this afternoon all the books from George’s room which I intend to come from there to my house. The weather was very warm and the business { 413 } most excessively fatiguing so that by the close I found myself so accablé as to require a cold bath which I took forthwith and it relieved me exceedingly. But I was nevertheless much fatigued. Rode to Quincy quite late and though my appetite was prodigious owing to my having had no dinner, yet my bones were so wearied that I could not rest very well. My father returned home quite sick on Saturday but seemed well this evening. I retired very early and had no conversation.
