rainy morning with thunder and lightening, but it cleared fine at night. I was busy writing my private letters to my sons today, as well as the usual answers to miscellaneous252 applications made here. Visits also of persons with letters. One from a Mr Watson from Northampton, who has brought all his children out here for education. One from Mr Hoffman of New York with a letter from my son Charles. We got the bag finished in good season, and I went out and took a long walk. Evening, I continued Whitelock’s book which is full of interest.
