Wednesday. 5th.

Occupied at the Office all day copying a Paper called a bill in Equity turning pretty much upon the question on which I gave a decision at { 190 } the Moot Court sometime since. It was long and I did but little else. Evening at home. George came in previous to going to Quincy’s Wedding where he is Groomsman.1 We had an animated discussion upon the propriety of writing to John upon his contemplated marriage. He will not do it and thereby betrays more littleness of feeling than I had wished to suspect him of. Read the remainder of the Evening. Pascal and Vivian Grey. George serenaded me as he was obliged to be out with the band.
1. Josiah Quincy (1802–1882) married Mary Jane Miller. See Adams Genealogy.
