Morning to town weather cool but clear. Received a Note from Abby with a long dissertation
upon my present which she wants to refuse, a thing I cannot possibly hear of. I answered
Then to Dr. Welsh’s to obtain some of my Grandfather’s papers which George had. Stopped
at Concert Hall to overlook the packing of some things which are purchased for the
House at Quincy. My time was thus almost entirely taken up during the morning, and
the afternoon was spent in finishing the list of my brother’s Law Books which was
done. I then rode to Quincy. Found there Mr. Degrand, who passed the evening.
