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.
