I was occupied much in my usual manner this morning, the weather was dark and cloudy but I managed to get along in my work. Called at the House and pushed on the measures of preparation there. Then to the Office where I had a Committee meet me from the Stone Cut-133ters at Quincy, Mess. Sanborn and Brown. I stated to them the amount of my instructions and then specified the terms upon which the Quarry could be had either in fee or on Lease. After discussion they concluded to take the Lease and I accordingly agreed to draw one up. Thus ends this matter.

The weather cleared away in the Afternoon. I was obliged however to go to the House and see the things done which were requisite previous to any proper arrangement of the domestic establishment. This took me until sunset. Returned home to tea. Evening. Mr. and Mrs. Frothingham, W. G. Brooks and his Wife, sister and her’s. Tolerably pleasant. Miss Henrietta Gray was this day married to Mr. Ignatius Sargent and they set off on a Journey.
