Friday 11th May.

I went this morning after finishing my Record, to the Dentist’s and suffered the disagreeable sensations consequent upon the extraction of a large tooth. Dr. Gunnell1 was however much more successful and calm in his operation than the man some weeks since who so tortured me as to make my resolution a very painful one to execute. The day was spent in occupation at home. Received a letter from Abby and on the whole felt much better. Evening alone at home.
1. Dr. James S. Gunnell had his office on Pennsylvania Avenue, between 9th and 10th streets ( Washington Directory, 1827).
