Friday July 6th.

Exercises as usual. I did not feel well and in exceeding low spirits. Received a letter from Abby, which I answered. The Marion Rifle Company from Baltimore took leave of the President to day. They have been amusing themselves for two or three days here.1 In the evening a ride and quiet at home.
1. The Baltimore rifle company, which was going to visit Georgetown, gave the President a “marching salute” in the morning and, passing the White House again in the afternoon as they returned, “gave it a salute of three cheers” (JQA, Diary, 6 July 1827).
