Monday 5th.

Left Medford quite late this morning, anticipating a cold and disagreeable ride, and as usual not a little attracted by other causes. But I reached Boston very comfortably, the weather having moderated somewhat. The morning was occupied in making payments preparatory to an admission to the Bar. Afternoon, reading Mr. Burke’s Thoughts on French Affairs. He seems to have had his head a little turned by his apprehensions, although I admit that there was some occasion for it. Somehow or other, I caught a violent Cold which prevented my going to the Office in the Evening, so I remained at home and read aloud to the ladies of the family.
