Morning cloudy, but I went to town notwithstanding, for the purpose of attending to the receipt of some Wood which I purchased the other day. I went to my House but left it in charge of the Office boy, for the purpose of performing Commissions of various kinds. The time has now come to make arrangements for our return to town, in order to which the household must be engaged which is now almost done. Returned to Quincy to dine.

Afternoon passed in reading Lingard in whose book I did not make much progress from the great shortness of the day. After tea, occupied putting labels into books until eight o’clock when I went up to Mrs. Adams’. The ladies took tea there. Mrs. Angier was there from Medford. I was very quiet hearing music until it was time to return home and read Lingard in whom I get along. I like his History so far, quite well.
