Day cloudy and threatening rain. Nevertheless I went to Boston accompanied by my Wife who was anxious to see her sister, Mrs. Frothingham. At the Office, thence to the House upon search for some Papers that are necessary for the beginning of the Quarter. Upon my return, I thought I would prepare myself for this, by draughting as much of the general account as I could at this time. So that I should be able to finish all without any difficulty on Friday and Saturday. It is somewhat doubtful to me whether it is expedient to send it immediately as my father is so engrossed by the business before Congress that he will not probably look at it. This with a few Commissions and a slight examination of the great Pamphlet upon the Bank constituted nearly the whole of my occupation.

Returned home, though not quite escaping a Shower from the South. Afternoon, finished Seneca’s third book de Ira. Quiet evening. I worked in the Garden somewhat.
