Morning to town, but before I had reached it a most violent shower came on nearly as bad as that we had a few days since. It was lucky for me that the rain was not in front or behind as I should unquestionably have been thoroughly drenched in such case. As it was I was clear very cheap. On my arrival at my Office however I did not find that my table and room had escaped so easily for my boy by his carelessness had left the windows open in his absence to Dr. Welsh’s. This thing being remedied I employed myself in examining George’s papers which I could not get through though I continued it until I went to Quincy. Weather damp and gloomy. Found my father comfortable and talked with him in the evening about my grandfather and his papers.
