Strolled to the Capitol. Heard a long discussion about points of order. But was more induced to stay because Miss Brooks was there. I conversed with her all day, and only returned home in time to dine. In the evening, I went to Southard’s.2 And we had quite a large party. It being the first this winter. I spent my evening very much in the society of the same young lady. Which leads me to a discovery which I have been gradually coming to for some time.


CFA spent the morning at home, reading Voltaire. He found Mrs. Everett with Miss Brooks at the Capitol (D/CFA/1).
