Tuesday. 22nd.

Morning at the Office. Four letters from home but not one of them giving the particulars of the case, which is very galling. George proses away in a letter which was written some time before.1 My mother seems to have been much affected but thinks some good may come of it in re-uniting the family. My father’s letter is short and written evidently in considerable agitation. I wrote a reply to him which took up the morning. Afternoon reading Mr. Thomas Dibdin’s Memoirs2 by way of relaxation. Evening at Chardon Brooks’ to see Abby.
1. GWA’s letter is missing.
2. The Reminiscences of Thomas Dibdin, of the Theatres Royal, Covent-Garden ..., N.Y., 1828.
