Morning occupied in examining authorities for my Case. After breakfast went to Long Wharf after my Cases of books which I succeeded in obtaining safely at my room. I cannot live comfortably without them. Went to Mrs. Frothingham’s for Abby and walked with her to Harding’s room to see the Pictures of my father and of Miss Dehon. They are likenesses but the former is not an agreeable one. At half past three, I started with George to go to Mr. Boylston’s. The day was cold. Found the old gentleman much decayed, and evidently likely to go soon. He was still kind and pleasant however. Returned at six and spent the evening pleasantly at Mrs. Frothingham’s. Miss Julia Gorham was there and quite pleasant. Returned home at ten accompanying this lady to her’s first.
