I called for Dr Palfrey at his old lodgings and accompanied him to the Unitarian Church, where Mr Haley preached. After service I called in company with him upon Mr Schleiden, Mr Bailey & Mr Seaton, finding only the first at home. Then I stopped in at his lodgings and had a conversation of about an hour with him on the general state of affairs here. Then home where I worked on my speech, which does not yet turn out to my satisfaction. Mr Sumner dined with us as usual, and in the evening I continued working.
