Wednesday 31st.1

I walked to the Capitol, but finding nothing was going on, returned directly. In the evening, we had a Drawing room. My time passed quite agreeably. I spent most of the evening with Miss Brooks. This young lady has been somewhat in my mind of late. I have been somewhat disposed to pay her attentions, which in the first place were paid only from an inability to get rid of them. But latterly I have been thinking more seriously, whether it would not be expedient to pursue the subject. My mind is not yet made up.
