The morning was dark and the snow fell thick and fast, it being something very like a storm. I determined upon going to the Office notwithstanding, where I was occupied in continuing my Sketch of the life of my Mother. No interruptions today.

Home where I read some of Herodotus which is gradually becoming more interesting and easy. Afternoon spent in writing upon my sketch of the Currency question. This appears if I should judge by the Newspapers to be awaking new interest so that if my attempt should ever be made it must be made now. Evening at home. Read to my Wife a part of Lockhart’s Life of Scott, rather interesting but a little too much detailed.
