Left Medford after passing an hour with Abby pleasantly. The weather was very unsettled
as it rained occasionally throughout the day. At the office, read a portion of Sir
William Jones’ Essay on the Law of Bailments.1
George was gone to Nahant. Took a salt water bath and was caught in a shower. Copied
Executive Record and commenced a review of Cicero’s Oration until time to return to
Quincy. Caught in another shower on the road. Evening, Peter the First of Russia by
Voltaire and Conversation with Thomas.
