Foggy morning but a very beautiful day. I remained at home all day and consumed a quantity of it in fishing in company with my Mother. We had very moderate success. Just enough to be tempted to try for more. On my return, passed an hour in comparing Text of the MS.

After dinner, my father wished me to accompany him to Braintree for the sake of taking possession of the Estate there belonging to the Judge.1 I accordingly went with him in the Carriage and the business being accomplished returned home alone. The rest of the day was short and passed in reading Lingard.

Quiet evening at home. Mr. Beale and Mr. Price Greenleaf called 376in and passed an hour. I finished the reign of John in Lingard and Idlers as usual.


JQA held a mortgage on the house and farm which TBA had owned and which was leased to Caleb Hollis (JQA, Diary, 9 Oct.).
