Sunday. 30th.

Morning at home reading and more busily occupied than I have been for some time. Read one of Bossuet’s Sermons on the Nativity,1 but was not much pleased with it. In the afternoon called upon George, got entangled in a very silly argument which I escaped from to go to Mrs. Frothingham’s where I passed the afternoon and evening very agreeably.
1. CFA’s copy of Jacques Bénigne Bossuet’s Chef-d’oeuvre oratoire, Paris, 1813, is in the Stone Library.
