Friday. 2d.

Morning at Mrs. Frothingham’s to see Abby. I felt very stupid in consequence of the dissipation of the night before, and did not get over it during the whole of the day. Afternoon at the Office. In the evening I went with Abby and George to Mrs. Gardner’s party. She is a daughter of Mr. Peabody of Salem and this ball was given to Mrs. Peabody, her brother’s lately married wife.1 It was tolerably pleasant and again twelve o’clock before I arrived safely at home.
1. Mrs. John Lowell Gardner, who gave the party, was the former Catherine Elizabeth Peabody, daughter of Joseph Peabody of Salem. Her brother, George Peabody, had recently married Clarissa Endicott. Information supplied by Mrs. Dorothy M. Potter, of the Essex Institute.
