I intended to have gone to Cambridge this afternoon, but could not get an horse. My
Cousin went and will return to-morrow night. Wrote a letter to my father.1
I do not relish this life of idleness and expectation. I am very desirous that Commencement
should be over, and shall certainly, not feel easy, till then. And indeed after that,
till I get settled at some business, I shall not be contented.
