Awoke this morning well. At the Office where I continued my attention to this little sketch as well as other smaller business concerns. I have now, I believe accomplished all the matters which were lying in arrears when I came to town. And nothing remains to me but such occupation as I can make.
The subject of the currency appears to be again exciting much attention and I am disposed again to make an effort upon it. This is the opportunity to be improved, and if I am at all equal to the scratch, I ought to come up to it under my own name. In conversing with Mr. Brooks upon it today he seemed to favor the idea.
After an hour of Greek and dinner, I devoted myself to writing in the afternoon which I steadily followed up my Wife being out, until eight o’clock when I joined her at Governor Everett’s. Conversation partly political, partly upon some Danish claims to the discovery of America. Home at ten.
