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.
