Morning at the Office. But not occupied as I ought to be. Went into the Common Pleas
for an hour to hear the Docket called over but found nothing new. Tried to read Blackstone
with attention but could not succeed. I wanted to go to Medford, being uncomfortable
at the Marlborough. Mr. Brooks asked me to go with him and I went. Passed the afternoon
and evening talking with Abby. My marriage seems now to be in serious agitation, and
at the same time some solemn reflection occurs to me. I am anxious to do right. Perhaps
I am doing wrong. Circumstances will soon decide. I felt a little depressed this evening
as latterly I am again becoming frightened.
