Friday. April 13th.

My Record was done in very good time and a portion of Geography read before breakfast. The morning closely devoted to law, until the arrival of the mail which brought me the long expected letter. She had but recently reached Boston after a tedious journey. I was paid on the whole for my trouble, and spent the whole of the afternoon in writing an answer to it, which gave me almost as much pleasure to write as the other did to read. George wrote to the family to day.1 He seems to be very much disposed to fix upon Miss Amory. I do not know that he could do better, and if things correspond as I think they do, on my return to Boston, I will take that affair under my especial direction. Evening with the family.
1. Letter missing.
