Reading Middleton before breakfast. At the Office reading Blackstone. Conversation
with George. Mr. Webster came to the Office. He looks very badly as I think. In the
afternoon went to Mrs. Frothingham’s and passed the afternoon with Abby. Returned
to dress and went with Abby to a party at Mrs. Salisbury’s.1
I don’t know the people and only received an Invitation upon Abby’s account. The
ball was as pleasant as usual, more of a crowd and many youngsters, and I was as usual
glad to get home.
