Tuesday 30th.

Morning to town, weather rainy and disagreeable. Engaged in writing for my father’s affairs with a short Note to Abby.1 Obtained a blonde lace Veil to present to her upon the occasion of her marriage. This is a little extravagant but I could not avoid it. Then to Hancock Street to take a list of my poor brother’s Clothes. Conversation with Harriet Welsh. She is a little too inquisitive. Dined at the Exchange where I met Genl. Wool. He is too precise by half. Afternoon. Engaged in making out a Catalogue of my brothers Law books. Returned to Quincy in the rain. Conversation with my father. His plans.
1. Missing.
