Saturday 8th.

Morning occupied before breakfast in writing to my Mother.1 After breakfast went down to hear the result of the meeting of Congress but no news came. The mail had been delayed for the first time. I then called at Mrs. Frothingham’s to see Abby and after a half an hour, I returned to the Office where I passed the day without doing much { 191 } which could be called useful. My case went on but on the whole a good deal of time was wasted. At five I went to Mrs. Frothingham’s to go out in the Carriage of Mr. B. to Medford. Mr. Brooks, Mrs. Everett, Abby and I went out. The night was very dark and rainy as the whole week has been. Arrived safe and felt dull after I got there.
