Saturday 20th.

Morning passed in conversation with my Mother. Spirits tolerably good. For the first time she went out and took a ride. The effort was very considerable, but on the whole she seemed to bear it as well as we could expect. I amused myself reading Burke. Paid one or two visits today. One to Mrs. Clay and one to Mrs. Rush. My object in coming here this time was not to go out at all, but I think it as well since I am here to pay this mark of respect. Evening with my Mother.
