Wrote a letter to my father according to custom. Went to the Office
and found a message from Abby who was at Mr. Frothingham’s. I went immediately and spent the morning with her. She was very dull. The news from Ward is very unfavourable, and they are solitary at Medford. She left town at one. Afternoon, Hutchinson. Evening, walk, and Cicero, Executive Record. Had a slight cold.
