Thursday. 31st.

Reading Middleton before breakfast. At the Office reading Blackstone. Received a letter from my Mother in tolerable spirits, relating much of the amusing conversation of the day. Also documents from John.1 Finished the long laboured Lecture of Judge Howe. Afternoon at Mrs. Frothingham’s to see Abby. Returned to dress and went with her to Mrs. Derby’s route. She is the most prodigious attempt at ton we have and her parties contain none but exclusives. They are consequently very dull. I was glad to get home. Her house is handsomely furnished but without use.
