Morning clear and fine. I rode to town accompanied by T. B. Adams Jr. My time was taken up in a great variety of occupations as usual. Arranging my Accounts and paying such of them as I found due, and brought to me. Then to the House, then to see Mrs. Frothingham and Mr. Brooks. And some time upon various Commissions intrusted to me.

Dined at Mr. Frothingham’s and had a pleasant conversation with him. Attended the Meeting of the Directors of the Boylston Market Association, Messrs. Williams and Child the only ones present. I drew up the records and completed the business that was waiting my presence to form a Quorum. Conversed a little about the Antimasonic proceedings in relation to the Presidency and the Governorship. This party is under bad guidance here. Returned to my Office where I met Thomas, and we proceeded to Quincy again. Evening with the 151Ladies. I was overfatigued. Read one of Bacon’s Essays and the Spectator.
