Heavy rain in the morning, a thing by no means unwelcome in these streets where the dust is intolerable. My visitors were however not relaxed much. I continued my work of forwarding claims and petitions. In the evening I went to see Mrs John Adams. There were all of our family present, and we were lively and pleasant.
