We rose, between ten and eleven in the forenoon. Little took a breakfast with me;
after which I went to the office; but felt entirely incapable of doing any thing serious.
I pass'd the time therefore till dinner in idle chat. In the afternoon I passed an
hour with Dr. Kilham; and again repaired to the office, with as little success as
ever. In the evening, all the gentlemen who were last night at the dance, were at
Putnam's lodgings. We drank and smoked, and sang there till nine o'clock; but notwithstanding
a forced appearance of hilarity was kept up, there was in fact no real mirth. All
were fatigued by the last night's siege, and unable to bear another, such as the inexhaustible
spirits of Amory, would have relished. At nine therefore we retired, and not long
after I got home, I went to bed.
