Morning devoted quietly to reading. Dined at Genl. Dearborn’s at Roxbury whither I went with my father. A large Company. Mr. Everett, Gorham,1
the two Harrises,2
Capt. and Mrs. Bainbridge, Capt. Morris, and Chauncy, Mr. Fuller,4
and a number of the Custom House Officers. I fell in among these much to my regret as they were dull and unprofitable companions. The returning ride was cold and chilly.
