Returned to Boston with Mr. Brooks. Morning extremely warm. I felt so uncomfortable
that I resorted to a cold bath which effectually restored me for the day. Conversed
with George upon the subject of my proposed arrangement to live at Quincy. I have
almost made up my mind upon the subject. Received an extremely long letter from my
Father together with a remittance as generous as any of the preceding ones. His kindness
to me is really gratifying. Afternoon, Executive Record, and packing up my books which
are a sad trouble to me. A person should expect to be stationary for life before he
indulges in a library. A thunder shower came upon us and effectually cooled the air.
I went out to walk in the evening, met J. R. Otis and shortly afterwards, J. B. Joy.
Did not leave them until ten o’clock.
