Found myself much relieved. Suffering now only from the painful effect of the Emetic in straining the throat. Passed the morning at Quincy but rode to Boston in the afternoon in the Chaise with Isaac Hull Adams.1
Saw Richardson at my room who spent an hour with me very pleasantly. Heard the news of the death of Mr. George Canning, prime Minister of England,2
and then returned to Quincy as I came in.
