Saturday. 23d.

Morning occupied in reading a number of the publication called the Library of useful knowledge1 instead of writing to my Mother, which I deferred until after breakfast as I expected letters. None came however and I wrote a short one.2 Afternoon, reading Hutchinson. Called at Mr. Frothingham’s to see Abby, but she did not come in. Evening passed with George at Dr. Welsh’s.
1. The Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge (London) began publication of the Library of Useful Knowledge in 1827.
