6th.

I alter'd my plans of study, and determined to copy forms in the day time because, I can do it notwithstanding all the noise that may be going forward in the office, and read at my own lodgings. I extract a great deal, and am almost tired with it, but Mr. Parsons advises me by all means not to give it up.
In the evening I received a long letter from my Sister,1 and likewise one from W. Cranch.2
1. Probably AA2 to JQA , 10 June–16 July (Adams Papers).
2. The only extant letter at this time from Cranch, dated 5 Oct., was probably the one JQA received on 9 Oct. (Adams Papers).
