Friday. 23rd.

Morning very fine, after the succession of bad weather, it comes most refreshingly. Went to the Office and read Blackstone. A melancholy way of passing a fine morning in the dark walls of an Office. Went to Mrs. Frothingham’s to see Abby who returned to Medford this morning. In the afternoon I resumed my Executive Record, which had been discontinued since my sickness and finished the papers of Novanglus and Massachusettensis. Then took a walk and found it exceedingly warm, after which in the evening I commenced Cicero’s Oration for Quintius.
