Read two or three Messages before breakfast. Morning at the office reading Blackstone.
Richardson called in. As Abby was to come into town tomorrow and I had a cold I determined
to remain in Boston. Richardson and I dined upon venison at the Boston Coffee House.
He passed the afternoon at the Office with me and the evening at my room where I invited
Davis to come also. I gave them a bottle of Champagne and we had a pleasant time.
