Wrote to my Mother1
this morning. Then to the Office. Some pages
of Blackstone. Received another letter from my father this morning. Weather, cold with snow clouds. After dinner rode out to Quincy with George. It is now six months or more since I was last here. Found my Uncle’s family all very well. Employed in planting some Spanish Chesnuts belonging to my Father. We put down between forty and fifty of them, also some Cork oak Acorns, common oak acorns and two cherries. In George’s absence the care of them devolves upon me. Mr. Price Greenleaf will be a great assistance to us. Took tea and returned to town in a heavy shower of rain. Evening at home.
