I have had three or four sleepless nights this weeks, and for the little rest I have
enjoyed I have been indebted to soporific draughts. I dined this day with Mr. Parsons
with Bridge and with Foster who took his station in the office on Thursday. This afternoon
I mounted a horse and went to Haverhill where I am determined to spend a few days,
and see if I cannot recruit my health. I found H. Lincoln here.
