Thursday 16th.

I should have gone to Boston yesterday to comply with an engagement made to Richardson to go to Nahant, but trusting that he would not think of taking a step in such weather, I postponed it until today when I went merely to discover that he had been. It was on the whole a fortunate escape for it was pouring torrents when I got into the Stage to return to Quincy after a very highly stupid day. Arrived safely without incident.
