Morning occupied in reading as usual. Office, Blackstone. Received a letter from my
Mother giving an account of the family affairs.1
They seem a little better. P. C. Brooks Jr. came in and asked me if I would go to
Medford which I readily consented to do. We went out and dined so as to return before
evening. Found them pretty well. On my return had a warm conversation with George
which was painful but I hope will turn out for the better. Evening occupied as usual.
