Wednesday. May 2d.

As much fire in my room as in winter. The day was spent in study almost incessant. So much so that I felt the effect of it in the day time. But the evening’s relaxation restored me and preserved me from impending headach. I performed all my duties to admiration today. But am apprehensive that I shall not be able to continue so intensely. { 126 } Family rather dull today. I played Billiards with Mary in the evening. Nothing remarkable to record.
