Friday February 1st.

Reading Middleton before breakfast. At the Office reading Blackstone. Conversation with George. Mr. Webster came to the Office. He looks very badly as I think. In the afternoon went to Mrs. Frothingham’s and passed the afternoon with Abby. Returned to dress and went with Abby to a party at Mrs. Salisbury’s.1 I don’t know the people and only received an Invitation upon Abby’s account. The ball was as pleasant as usual, more of a crowd and many youngsters, and I was as usual glad to get home.
1. Mrs. Samuel Salisbury, whose husband was a Boston merchant, lived at 29 Sumner Street (Boston Directory, 1829–1830).
