Wednesday. 26th.

Morning at the Office. Occupied in reading Law excepting half an hour which I passed in looking through the Market. This is a famous day in New England, being that previous to Thanksgiving. The substitute of the Puritans for Christmas. The preparations are making throughout the State for rich and poor, and the markets are abundantly filled. I was given to understand today that the display was unusually meagre. At any rate, I was disappointed in my expectation about it. The afternoon was passed quietly and the evening at the Office.
