My day for going to town. Occupied as usual. Walked up to see the Tenant in Tremont Street, thence to my house and to Hancock Street. Nothing done. Had a call at Office from Hayford the Mason about a furnace, from A. H. Everett about nothing and from a Mr. Newman who had as little business. To see Mr. Brooks for a few moments and then after various delays, home to Quincy.

Afternoon as usual at my house where the next business is the moving of trees which I began this day. Evening, finished my first drafts of both Lectures. Mr. Beale and his two daughters came in for a short time. I made a blundering speech. Luckily they are not sensitive or I would have wished my tongue out.
