Morning quite warm. This season is what they call here Indian Summer. At home reading
Mr. Burke on the State of the Nation. Passed the afternoon in making an outline of
a letter to Mr. Brooks. The Oyster Supper did not quite agree with me. Took a ride
with my Mother. A company to dine today. Gov. Cass, Mr., Mrs. and Miss Eliot, Miss
Judge and Miss Cranch, Mrs. Dawes, Mr. and Mrs. Barrel, Dr. Watkins, Dr. Huntt, Mr.
Col. Trumbull, Mr. Frye and the family. It was a singular collection but it passed
off very well. I sat between Mr. Persico and Dr. Huntt.
