Morning cloudy and cold. I concluded however to go to town. At the Office a little while and from thence to the Athenaeum—Where I returned my books without being able to find any new ones. My time passed rapidly enough notwithstanding. I had only a minute to pass and transact business at My Office with Mr. Geitner, and Gorham Brooks called.

Returned to Quincy. Passed the afternoon in severe exercise in remaking the Gravel walk which does not answer expectation. I worked hard myself and ought to be repaid in health. Indeed that has been very good this Summer. Quiet evening.
