Saturday 25th.

Morning quite warm and pleasant. Passed a portion of it in copying Mr. Vaughan’s papers and another part in reading Mr. Burke. This with a call or two with Thomas at some of the principal houses here finished the time until luncheon, after which I took a walk and answered a letter from Abby received this morning. I felt as if I had very little fluency today and so finished only four pages, instead of the more common quantity of five. Her letter was a pleasant one, and giving me notice of her return to Boston shortly. Evening quietly at home. Thomas Hellen dined here. He looks shockingly.
