Thursday. 17th.

Arose late and feeling the effects of a violent cold throughout my whole system. Went to the Office, read Stearns as usual. Nothing peculiar occurred. Afternoon again at the Office upon Lady Morgan’s Italy which I find to be very dull. Walked down upon the alarm of fire to the spot which was the Court House in Leverett Street. Evening at P. C. Brooks Jr. Abby was not in good spirits and in one of those fits of depression which momentarily affect her very much. I succeeded in getting her out of it before we parted.
