A heavy snow storm all day, so that I did not think it worth my while to stir out of the house. This gave me an opportunity to labor with little interruption upon my accounts and letters. A few persons in pursuit of office came from the immediate vicinity, the rest were shut out. I hardly knew where to begin in the process of arrangements, preparatory to my departure. And I have a sense that something may yet happen at Washington which will defeat all these plans.
