Wednesday 12th.

Morning call at Mrs. Frothingham’s. Saw Abby. Previously to this received a letter from my Mother in tolerable spirits. This is the unaccountable part of her character. Nothing is said in relation to the previous letter and one would not suppose that any thing could have happened so lately before to create such a disturbance. My own spirits however were materially improved by this change. After an hour with Abby, passed the remainder of the day at the Office. In the evening a walk with George, and drank a bottle of Champagne with Richardson who called at my room and passed a couple of hours in conversation with me.
