I finished the letter to my Mother commenced last evening.1
Then went to the Office but my time slipped away without my doing much. Weather very
rainy. Received a note from Abby2
intimating that it would be more proper to stay in town this week, by which I understand
that Mrs. Everett is in momentary expectation of being confined. As with such a catastrophe
I should be as little desirous of being in the house as they would be to have me,
I am content to remain in Boston for the first time since my residence here on Sunday.
Busy in copying during the afternoon and in the evening quietly at my room, reading
Plato and copying Executive Record. Received a letter from my Father.
