Friday. April 20th.

After the duties were accomplished which are arranged before breakfast, I availed myself of a leisure day, but repented of my determination before I had been long out in executing it. I mean fishing. I felt languid and dull from the disagreeable effects of the drinking yesterday. Those days are over for me. I find myself entirely beyond relishing them. On my return I found a letter from Abby which amused and occupied me for the rest of the day. I read it over and over. But felt a little unwell from the heat of the Sun acting so long upon me. Evening at home duller than usual.
