Morning cloudy and disagreeable. It afterwards set in to rain quite hard. I went to town and passed my morning at the office excepting an hour’s visit at the Gallery of Paintings with Mr. Peabody. Mr. Gulliver, the Tenant of one of my Father’s houses in Tremont Street, after making so many difficulties that I gave him a notice to quit, sent me the Quarter’s rent this morning. He is a most provoking man. I should not be sorry to get rid of him. Read nothing.

Returned to Medford in a heavy shower of rain from the Eastward. There were at dinner today, Mrs. Hall, Miss Hall, and Miss Henrietta Gray. These ladies spent the Afternoon. I felt fatigued and sleepy afterwards. Tried to read but accomplished exceeding little. So drowsy, I retired to bed early.
