Prayers, recitation, Say, Bigelow’s lecture, Everett’s1 and Warren’s, weather rainy, at home all day and evening.
1. Professor Everett resumed his lectures on Greek literature. In his Notebook (Adams Papers, Microfilms, Reel No. 314) CFA made on 4 May a full report of Everett’s first lecture, on Greek
history and philosophy, but the subsequent lectures in the series through 11 May,
on Socrates, Plato, etc., he recorded only in rough notes, which he doubtless intended
later to amplify and transcribe.
