I was at home all day, but entirely incapable of doing any thing. My thoughts almost
entirely taken up by that particular subject. I had a good deal of conversation with
my Mother upon the subject. She agrees with me very much in opinion. In the evening
I went to the party given by Mr. Livingston. A ball and supper. The Champagne was
very plentifully circulated. I drank nothing owing to my feeling sick but passed a
very pleasant evening notwithstanding. Returned home quite late.
