The weather changed from snow to rain during the night and the
consequence was that the streets were scarcely passable this morning. Morning at the Office for a few minutes, received a long letter from my Mother explaining the mysterious letters and surprising me very much.1
Went to Mrs. Frothingham’s to see Abby and remained there until dinner. Afternoon at the office. Conversation upon miscellaneous subjects until Late so that I did nothing all day. Evening with Abby passed in the luxury of love.
