Tuesday. 23rd.

Morning at home as usual, with my Mother. Conversation somewhat exhausted but her spirits seem to remain tolerably good. I begin to feel considerable inconvenience from want of exercise and my spirits by some manner of means seem to be very much depressed. Received a letter from George,1 communicating to me the result of the business instructions which I have given him. He has invested for me of the sum of one thousand dollars which my father gave me on my coming of age, four hundred and fifty dollars in six shares of the Boston Bank at seventy five dollars a share, and four hundred and twenty dollars in seven shares of the State Bank with an advance upon them of twenty one dollars as they have the dividend on. There is still a balance of more than a hundred dollars which he is seeking to invest. This was on the whole, quite satisfactory, and I felt relieved from some anxiety on this account. Went to ride with my Mother and occupied the afternoon in answering George.2 I could not get all that I have to say in one letter. Evening with my Mother.
