Friday. 21st.

Returned to town with Abby and Mr. Brooks in his Carriage. Office. No letters, then to Mrs. Frothingham’s to see her upon her return home. They have difficulties as well as all others and I must say do wrong sometimes. The return of Mrs. F. rather diminishes my opinion of her character. I think her a good woman but not capable of that decided course of conduct which influences a really high souled female. I can easily account for her anxiety to return but it looks like selfishness, to give way to it. At the Office as usual all day, finished Hutchinson and evening, Cicero and Record.
