I recommenced my practice of bathing in the morning, left off for some days on account of a pain in my breast. I studied quite well today and on the whole got through the day. I received a letter from Abby with some striking things in it.1 One also from Richardson.2 In the evening, a ride with Madame.


Abigail wrote of GWA’s unhappy love affair with Mary C. Hellen and expressed her belief “that nothing on earth would induce him to renew the connection” (Abigail B. Brooks to CFA, 17 June 1827, Adams Papers).
