Monday 3rd.

Returned to town this morning. Received letters from home of a very pleasing description, giving an account of the Wedding and forwarding a piece of cake. My father in his, makes a very kind allusion to my own affairs.1 There was a letter for Abby2 which I inclosed to her but could not send. The day passed much as usual. In the evening attended the Moot Court and heard a case argued, after which returned home and was occupied reading.
1. Announcing the wedding of JA2 and Mary C. Hellen, JQA wrote CFA: “Wish them with me all possible happiness in this connection, and in due time be assured of prayers equally fervent for the prosperity of your own, in prospect, from your affectionate father” (JQA to CFA, 25 Feb. 1828, Adams Papers).
2. Missing.
