Thursday 24th.

The weather still continues excessively cold. Morning at the Office reading Blackstone. Called upon Allyne Otis with Mr. T. Davis. Found him at home and saw all the family. There is something about them which I like very much, and yet what it is, is hardly possible to tell. Mrs. Otis scolded well for my not having been before. Returning from there I called upon George who is sick, confined to his room with a swelled face. I knew too well by the experience of last Spring what it was not to pity him. After dinner went to Mrs. Frothingham’s where I passed the afternoon and evening to see Abby. Conversed a good deal with her upon interesting but rather painful subjects. Returned home at ten.
