Friday 19th.

Morning passed with my Mother. Conversation relative to my { 285 } prospects and the situation in which my conversation with my father places me. I have not yet recovered from that and my feelings are more alienated from him than I feel entirely willing to express. It was extremely unfortunate that this thing occurred for it has had an extremely depressing effect upon my spirits. Disappointed in not having any letter from Abby. Afternoon, reading Burke, dissertation upon Taste. Evening with my Mother.
