I took my plan into town with me and returned it to Mr. Sparrel the Architect with the proposed amendments, and a request that he would 71get it done for me by the next Thursday to which he agreed. Joseph H. Adams went in and returned with me. I was engaged in Accounts and in some few Commissions for my father and various other members of the family. This took up much of the time. I also went to the House and found there some more volumes of the MS papers of my grandfather which are now taking something like shape. I have now fifteen of them bound, embracing much of the valuable part of his life.1 I returned to Quincy and spent the afternoon in writing. I will terminate this business of my Diary before I do any thing else. Evening quietly at home.


Beginning in 1833, CFA had embarked upon the formidable task of arranging, indexing, and having bound the loose letters of JA and AA. The project had been carried forward in the intervening period; see vol. 5:160.
