Friday. 19th.

Morning occupied in reading but with less time than I have had heretofore. After breakfast at the Office without reading much. In the Circuit Court without hearing much. Went to an auction of Oil Paintings and purchased some for little or nothing. Called at Miss Carter’s for Abby and paid visits with her to Mrs. Smith and Mrs. Cruft, dropping in at Miss Shepherd’s. I then returned home to dine. At four o’clock I called at Mrs. Frothingham’s in a Gig for Abby and drove her out of town to Medford where I passed the evening with her, as the family went out to tea.
