Wet, rainy day. I went to the Office as usual where I got together my papers to send to Washington. Occupied in Accounts as usual. The Middlesex Bank, a sort of “pendant” to the Commonwealth Bank has failed. The alarm has spread respecting the Hancock, the Commercial 383and the Fulton so that it has become absolutely necessary to adopt some course and I wait to see what it will be.

Home after a call at the Athenaeum to look up one or two historical points. Herodotus which I have not thought it worth while to remit. Afternoon and evening I continued my Lecture and finished it. May the result be prosperous, of which I do not always feel entirely confident. Read some of Lockhart to my Wife.
