Friday 11th May.

I went this morning after finishing my Record, to the Dentist’s and suffered the disagreeable sensations consequent upon the extraction of a large tooth. Dr. Gunnell1 was however much more successful and calm in his operation than the man some weeks since who so tortured me as to make my resolution a very painful one to execute. The day was spent in occupation at home. Received a letter from Abby and on the whole felt much better. Evening alone at home.
1. Dr. James S. Gunnell had his office on Pennsylvania Avenue, between 9th and 10th streets (Washington Directory, 1827).
