Saturday May 12th.

Performed my duties tolerably well today. After the duties of the morning I sat down and wrote a long letter to Richardson in answer to one received yesterday which was of more merit than usual as it regards vivacity and life.1 Quite a contrast to that of the preceding week. Very little of moment going on. The political world seems to be settling into quiet after the storm and the Clouds show signs of clearing. Evening at home and quiet.
1. Both letters are missing.
