Friday 22nd.

Returned to town with Mr. Brooks and Abby. The weather was delightful and the softness of the air spread an agreeable influence over my feelings, which they needed very much. At the Office I was exceedingly disappointed at not finding any letters from home and began to think they had given me up. The morning was passed in a lazy way. Richardson called and sat an hour but I was exceeding dull. Afternoon reading Clarendon which interested me very much, particularly in the account of the civil war when it turned against the king. Took a walk. My system feels the effect of Spring here very much. But I had a better appetite this evening than for a week past. Went to see Miss Harriet Welsh who gave me some News regarding the arrangements of the family and that John and his wife were to come on.
