Monday 15th.1

I walked to the Capitol today. In the Supreme Court I found Miss Brooks and Mrs. Everett and as I had nothing to do more interesting, I attended upon them. We went to the House of Re[presentatives]. where Mr. E. made a short speech, apparently with a view only to please his wife. It had but little in it. After dinner I went alone to { 99 } Mr. Senator Bouligny’s in Georgetown where my attention was almost exclusively taken up by the same two ladies.2
1. From D/CFA/5.
2. Dominique Bouligny (1773–1833) served as Louisiana Senator from 1824 to 1829 (Biog. Dir. Cong.). A Mr. Coster was also present (D/CFA/1); he was probably John G. Coster, the wealthy New York merchant.
