Friday 5th.

Breakfasted with John at the Exchange. Read law a couple of hours at the Office and then went round with John paying visits, which occupied us until dinner which I took with John and George at the Exchange. After it John and I rode to Winter Hill and passed an hour with Mrs. Everett, and from thence to Medford where we drank tea. { 168 } I returned to take leave of my father and dress myself for a party. I rode down to Dr. Gorham’s, took up Abby and then went to Mrs. Jones’s, a lady I never knew nor heard of before. A small party of young people, and rather dull. My head ached from fatigue.
