The season now tends rapidly to spring. Today was soft and mild. I went to the Office and was engaged pretty constantly in business, various things requiring some attention. Received a note from Spear saying that he had agreed for my bricks so that I think I now have secured all the materials necessary for my construction. This relieves my mind considerably.

Short walk. The intelligence from Washington is still very interesting as the Southern members appear to have taken in great dudgeon the result in the House of Representatives. A southern Convention is talked of which will end in smoke.

Home. Livy. Had company at home. Mr. Brooks, Governor Everett, Mr. Frothingham and P. C Brooks Jr. Pleasant enough but not so agreeable as is very commonly my dinner of young men. They left at sunset and evening quietly reading Lamartine to my Wife. After which I revised more copy.
