Monday. 17th.

Morning, a short time at the Office. Went then to see Abby at her { 194 } sister’s, and passed the afternoon with her. Mr. Thos. Welsh sent for me to intimate that I had talked George too low for that he had inoculated his friends with the same notion of despair in regard to political affairs. This gave occasion to an idea that I might write something which could bring up the spirits of the Party. But the vis is not in me and prudence also would forbid. But something of the kind is undoubtedly necessary. Abby wished me to remain with her so I broke my engagements at the Moot Court for the first time, and passed a much more agreeable evening with her.
