A lovely day as I ever knew at this season of the year. I did not spend it very usefully for I was all the morning at the wharf fishing with my Mother and all the afternoon at my House. We had very good sport catching smelts notwithstanding the uncommon mildness of the air. Miss E. C. Adams, Eliz. Dewint and Hannah Miller dined and spent the day here. In the evening, I accompanied some of the ladies to Mr. Beale’s to see them after their loss and on my return sat down to my second Lecture.
